5% on £1,500 is a good motivator.
Just wish they'd use a PIN Sentry or whatever equivalent on their online banking.

I use Thunderbird to view feeds, but it's a pain because you can't easily set login cookies so sites like Twitter constantly bug me about "this post may contain sensitive information".
Unfortunately I haven't found a better program, though that QuiteRSS looks interesting (I'm not too bothered about the mail capabilities of Thunderbird; Mail is always running in the background anyway).
@Norman: Ah, yes I had seen that, but I ran into a different issue because WSUS doesn't seem to like letting me add features in that way (see also: JP IME dictionaries and such). I'll give it another go though, as I may have solved that but forgotten that it was applicable to this issue too.
(Unless they've updated it, I still need to go through a PDF printer to make XPS into PDF though. Oy.)
(My comment was referring to how Silverlight is to Flash as XPS is to PDF, not why LO can't open them; I hadn't even considered trying that)
On a related note, I've recently had to deal with people sending me proofs of payment... as XPS files. Which would be fine except none of the Windows 10 apps can read the damn things anymore.
Whoever decided that deprecated apps (Reader) are going to be unable to work at all ("Reader is no longer supported. Go screw yourself."), rather than just no longer updated needs shooting with something very pointy.
I have to send them to our one remaining W7 machine to convert them to PDF.
I actually quite enjoyed the new Thunderbirds, but I have to say the half-hour timeslot really hurt it. Everything was a bit to frantic to get the story completed.
I loved the way they made the ships believeable with little details like manouevring jets, warning labels, etc.
Curves and Colours, 80 lines, minimum spread, multicolour (Windows 98 version) was my favourite. The XP version had a rubbish selection of colours.
I'm sure these still exist on the net somewhere, but the whole screen saver concept isn't really a thing any more.
I believe RAW is to JPG as something like a CD track is to an MP3 - the unmodified data without any sort of compression algorithm. Just as you'd want to work on the original CD rather than an MP3 for making some processed audio, so too do people want the unprocessed data from the camera's imaging device to work with when producing a picture. So similar in concept to, but probably very distinct from, a BMP image.
