Re: Why is the company still alive?
You'll be able to tell on the seat map as the NG and this Max variant have different numbers of seats.

Nerd hat on. We don't know what ancient Egyptian actually sounded like as they didn't, except in certain circumstances, write down the vowel sounds. (I believe that Arabic is the same.) The closest we can get to it these days is coptic which is the direct descendant of ancient Egyptian, and we do know how to pronouce.
I wonder if this is due to the wondrous quote in the wordfence blog from their creative director, who has never heard of the computer misuse act.
“Last year we had some serious problems after someone obtained a huge list of license keys and downloaded all of our products. The keys and files were then distributed on their file sharing site, which has since been taken down (not by us, ironically!). The drop tables function was put in place to try to stop this at the time.”
This is so blatant and open I'd have a hard time believing it is not true. The suing is probably from the rest of the directors once they released what their colleague has done.
It routinely fails between the hours of 7am and 9am, and 4pm and 6pm. Why? Well if you haven't guessed it's rush hour and they seem to have 1 386SX doing the processing for the entire country. It's even more galling that when it doesn't work you have to pay the higher cash price.
Another piece of "genius" development is that if you do have to buy a ticket you have 5 minutes to use it by scanning it on the bus. Woe betide that the bus is full and you have to wait for the next one.
Yeah, specifically the Matt and Tom 2nd channel. Though I do thoroughly recommend Tom Scott's channel and especially their QI a like called "Citation Needed" which takes a Wikipedia article that hopefully the panel (same panel everytime) don't know about and ask them questions on it. It's QI without the star egos spoiling things.
I've supported a few YouTube channels in the past by clicking on the affiliate links and bought things I was going to buy anyway. Recently I've seen a few channels do "The weird things people bought with my affiliate link". Only then did I realise that these channels could get a hold of a list of all the things that were bought via the affiliate link, anonymised, but still a comprehensive list. Somehow this just all felt a little too creepy and I stopped clicking on affiliate links altogether.
No they aren't great contributors to Microsoft's profit margins but they still spent money in the form of development time to add accessibility features to support those users anyway. (They'll probably never make a profit on those users ever.) One of the previous versions added Braille reader support and they've been improving and tweaking screen reader support version by version.
If others have had the same problems that we have had with the fitbit syncing app then it's not a surprise that their market has crashed. We've tried syncing across android, windows and windows mobile and the experience is uniformly terrible. Contacting support is just a long-winded way to get random useless support site articles in your inbox. So, now it's just a one day step counter with watch functionality and we are actively waiting for it to fall apart so we can eventually throw it in the bin where it belongs.
Taunton isn't all that bad as between Taunton to Bridgwater alongside the canal there is a scale model of the Solar System that really enforces how empty the outer solar system is. Also, you can use phrases like "have we missed Uranus" and "Uranus is coming up".
