    I drove into it at the traffic lights because it wouldn't move. Somehow it wound up on the back even whilst I attached a new trailer. Eventually it was deposited on top of the armcoe barriers in Glasgow.

    Just so that you are aware, I am going to stream again, however it may only be an hour at a time. That is the maximum Virgin will let me before they throttle me.

    EDIT: I will be able to stream for more than an hour, however only at 720p.

    ok, few things here.

    Music, keep it off. It is eating into your bandwidth something fierce and causing drop outs. A few of us via steamchat noticed this (we each dropped at the same time).
    Voice, we cant hear it over the music. It might be low your end, but ours its high, and also when we can hear you, it sounds like it is a teenager who's voice is going through a speech compressor making it very high pitch for a voice
    Stream quality, it is exceptionally choppy (I watch a few others stream live without issue). If you are using wireless, switch to a wired connection, if you are wired, look at your router or your bandwidth and speak to the provider. Looking at your sig, I recommend you speak to virgin, as your upload is nowhere near enough for a decent stream.

    Sorry to be blunt but it is how I am

    Sorry about that, I do understand and I am getting a better mic so I will not sound like a teenager. I know about the upload and it has been fine recently.

    It's not quite right how addictive this game actually is.

    Was using the keyboard controls, but then dug out a really old Logitech dual action controller and it is perfect for it.

    You could try playing locally stored music, that wouldn't eat bandwidth and go out with the stream.

    Note to self : 80mph and sharp corners do not mix, as I found out as my cab went sideways for a few hundred metres, then righted itself and rear ended another truck. I don't think anyone will be buying the cars I was transporting.....at 40% damage so far!

    I'd hate to sit in the car/truck with your driving... :P

    I managed to beat the expected time of a delivery yesterday. Delivery from Birmingham to Debrecen. Shaved off 3.5 hours from the delivery estimated time (did 110mph right the way down the motorways and some dodgy driving). For beating the expected time, for every hour I got an additional £500

    I've regularly shaved time off to the point I'd have needed rest before the end and now don't (usually by an hour or so).

    And it was quite fun actually....sliding sideways in the cab, then magically righting yourself. I don't think the truck I ran in to was too impressed, but who cares

    My thought has always been 3 tickets at £440 each compared to a £60k payout.... :P
