Lets Play Car Mechanic Simulator 2014

This one is an unusual one.  I saw the game become available on steam the other day and wondered how on earth they could make a game about being a game mechanic.

Of course I really  shouldnt have been surprised considering how many of sim games are now available. I am one of those people that like sim games but have got used to them being pretty poor and pretty badly limited in what you are actually able to do.

I have to say that Car Mechanic Simulator 2014 actually seems pretty competent. As your’ll see in the video I played the first full mission but what you wont see is that I had got half way through the second mission before my computer crashed which isnt the games fault. From what i have played already the game is well made has great graphics and seems to cover alot of varing situations.¬†¬†The game is stable and I had a good time with it. Check out my video and then find the game on steam.


I am hoping to upload further missions very soon. Also look out for further episodes of my Age of Empires videos.

Happy New Year

Just writing to wish everyone a happy and prosperous new year,

Enjoy yourself tonight but make sure that you are careful out there.


I have been rubbish at keeping this blog updated again this year its been most hectic and I have been concentrating on family and finding a job. Think we are all looking forward to a rather quieter 2014.

There is a proverb that goes ¬†something like ” May you live in interesting times” I for one hope that 2014 is far less interesting that 2013.


Thats all for now see you next year ūüėÄ


Wow How Time Has Flown

I can’t¬†believe¬†it’s almost been a year since I last posted something on here.

A lot has happened in the time period much more than i could ever have imagined.

Life is great, I moved to Manchester to live with my partner we then both moved to another part of Manchester into our own house. We decorated said house from top to bottom in a total time of about 3 weeks.

I have learnt so much not just about how to hang wallpaper [it’s rather fun but frustrating] but also about life away from parents, stresses with bills and money.

I also managed to pass my driving test second time around and having a car and being able to get around has been such a godsend, I regret not learning sooner although that brings its own financial stress as well as mechanical which is something im going to mention in another post soon.

Learning how to deal with my partners 3 kids has also been an eye opener they are great kids and love every minute that i spend with them even when they drive me crazy but i would change nothing I love them all and am looking very much forward to spending our first Christmas together as a family.

My skills for cooking which I also enjoy are coming along quickly i have always been good at following instructions and methods its always my timing that has let me down this is improving a lot and although mistakes are on occasion still made I have not yet had a complete disaster in the culinary department.

So yes a very busy year its been a big adventure and there have been up’s and down’s and im sure several other clich√© it also explains why i¬†haven’t¬†been posting on this blog as much as i had intended. Just¬†haven’t¬†had the time or inclination to do anything with it.

I do now though as life has started to get into some kind of “normal” routine have some ideas of what I want to do so keep an eye out. I’m planning to do at least one more post today which is completely unrelated to most of what is already on this blog but is more of a reminder for myself than anything else but I do hope that people will find it useful.

Anyway enough of the waffle.

The full comparison chart is below.

Ad-Aware Comparison Chart 1

Ad-Aware Comparison Chart 2

I and many others have been beta testing this version and its easily the best version released in the last view years it is faster and uses far less resources not only that but all versions now include automatic updates pinpoint scanning [being able to click a file and scaning it] and real time protection against malicious processes with a basic level of Ad-Watch live.


I really recommend this it is certainly the best version in the last couple of years and defiantly the best value for more infomation and to download Ad-Aware Anniversary Edtion Click Here


Press release from lavasoft HQ

New Ad-Aware Version Marks 10-Year Anniversary

Gothenburg, Sweden (January 20, 2009) Well-known anti-spyware pioneer Lavasoft today announced the global release of Ad-Aware – Anniversary Edition, the latest version of their flagship product that celebrates 10 years at the forefront of malware detection and removal.

‚ÄúWe were the first on the global market with anti-spyware protection when it was still largely unknown. And now with a decade behind us as a leader in the anti-malware industry, we know that today‚Äôs computer users need advanced technology that comes in the form of a light, easy-to-use product,‚ÄĚ said Lavasoft CEO Jason King.

King continued, ‚ÄúWe have focused our efforts for this new version on our core competence for online security ‚Äď blocking, detection, removal, and clean-up ‚Äď and we have poured our technological advances in these core areas instead of simply adding more bells and whistles that generally add to the strain on a user‚Äôs computer.‚ÄĚ

The repair and clean-up of files after a malware infection is one of the main competitive advantages for Ad-Aware. Most companies today are good at finding and removing malware, but there is a final step of repairing and cleaning-up the aftermath of a computer infection that distinguishes Ad-Aware from other products on the market.

What’s new:

¬∑ Radically reduced computer resource use:¬† Only 18% of CPU during scans ‚Äď Improved 60% over the previous version, and markedly better than top competitors including AVG, Kaspersky, Norton 360, and PC Tools

· Rapid scans hitting 36 MB per second: Top scanning speed over AVG, Kaspersky, Norton, and PC Tools

· Behavior-based heuristics methodology to pinpoint the newest forms of malware

· Overhauled real-time blocking with the newly integrated Ad-Watch Live!

¬∑ Lavasoft SmartSet: Default settings based on our expert recommendations mean you are ‚Äėgood to go‚Äô immediately after installation

· Lavasoft Toolbox: includes AutoStart Manager, ThreatWork, Process Watch and Hosts File Editor

· Real-time blocking and rootkit protection now also included with the Free version

· Available in English, Portuguese, Dutch, French, German, Italian, and Spanish, Traditional Chinese (new), Simplified Chinese (new), and Japanese (new).

· Coming Soon: Anti-Virus in the Free version!

The price of Ad-Aware remains unchanged at $26.95 for the Plus version and $39.95 for the Pro version.  Deep discounts are available for multi-user licenses, and technical support is free. Lavasoft continues to distribute a Free version as a no-strings-attached option to ensure that all computer users are able to protect their privacy when connecting to the Internet. For a full performance report and competitive comparison, see

All valid licenses for Ad-Aware receive a free update to the new version.
