How did Paul come up with the name DaSquirrelsNuts?
When originally looking for a username for PSN, he wanted to go with something witty, based off an English saying “The dogs b**cks” He figured as he liked squirrels, he would go for something like “The squirrels nuts” however due to a restriction of letters on XBL, the “the” had to be replaced with “da” hence the name “DaSquirrelsNuts”

Sunday Night Trucking
Sunday Night Trucking is no longer a regular Sunday night slot in my Twitch schedule.
I produced the show every Sunday for seven years. Over time it has become more difficult to figure out things to do that I haven’t already done.
We’ve driven every truck down every road and done plenty of crazy other things. SCS make a wonderful and enjoyable trucking game and thanks to fantastic mod creators the durability of the game has been maintained. However, the rate of new mods has slowed over the years and new content from SCS takes time and can’t keep up with my weekly schedule.
It is for these reasons I have stopped making it a weekly show. That doesn’t mean I have stopped playing ETS2 or ATS, I simply will not be playing it every Sunday evening.
If you want to go back and re-watch SNT, there are well over 700 episodes on Squirrel Plus (https://simme.rs/3be9Gl1) going back to 2015.
If you’ve been banned and want to appeal.
