The one who set the logic needs to resign, even according to star k you should've been able to set and then enter shabbos mode with the current settings, instead of doing it blindly

They have an extra zechus to get this news on Chol Hamoed when they (including their website) are closed despite the potential for missed sales.

Disclaimers:

1. I don't know if anything coming from thesun.co.uk can be categorized as Interesting.
2. Most (or all) of the "archeological evidence" isn't based on anything corroborated by Jewish tradition IINM.

https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/16300240/bible-archaeologists-mount-sinai-god-moses-commandments/

The only reason I found this interesting and intriguing, is because the way I read things I believe understand Midyan to be located more or less around present-day Kuwait, which always puzzled me how Moshe Rabbeinu would end up in the Sinai Peninsula with Yisro's herd.

https://www.google.com/maps/place/28%C2%B035'48.0%22N+35%C2%B020'08.0%22E/@28.6111824,35.3488186,12z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0x0!8m2!3d28.5966667!4d35.3355556

This location is about 700-750 miles in a straight path from Kuwait. I'm not convinced, though it is closer than anywhere in the Sinai Peninsula.

What is the basis of your understanding that Midyan is around Kuwait? My rudimentary understanding placed them near Moav. It would have been quite some distance for there to be an abundance of Midyan women right near where the Yidden were when near Moav, Sichon and Og and they would have needed to travel there to wage war with them as described in the pasuk.

My basis is the possuk פתורה אשר על הנהר ארץ בני עמו which places Midyan (ארץ בני עמו) on the bank of נהר פרת.  (see Rashi and Unkelos here and here)

I also wonder if the geography might have changed with the events described in שירת הבאר. Is it possible that the gulf of Eilat/Aqaba didn't exist at the time, and was only created by the seismological event described in שירת הבאר?

How many people will pay attention to the following (which seems to be reiterated a few times)

Many of the transactions in the documents involve no legal wrongdoing.
