I've heard some colleagues from Teeside (north east England) use it, so it does still get at least some usage :)

Not sure if you are referring to the 'Microsoft ABC Pinyin Input Style'? I've tried that, and I'm not sure how it's supposed to work, but while it displays characters based on Pinyin you enter, it doesn't seem to use the tones you enter (at least not how I would expect!). For example, wo3 displays , which isn't what I would expect

I know you said you didn't wan't to discuss it... but most western spirits do have an ABV in the same sort of range as 白酒 (40-60%).
