Letters: various

May I suggest that on the people moves page (Jan/Feb 2008, p50), it is the individuals that are highlighted in bold, rather than the companies? It would make it much easier to scan for familiar names.
Don Shore

The editor replies: We agree. You can find the new style in this issue.

Just thought I’d let you know I appreciate the new matt paper you’re printing The Actuary on — so much easier to read without reflection from the lights. Wish all the other magazines I subscribe to would go the same way.
Pauline Armitage

Congratulations on the new website. Just one suggestion — for the news section, it would be nice to see a short precis of each story to save clicking on each one.
Ron Engelbert

The editor replies: Thanks Ron — this has now been introduced.

I really like this new format. Well done. It is an excellent new service to FIAs abroad.
Ian Markham

I’m not impressed by the new style. The magazine is reminiscent of an airline magazine and that’s not an image that I want to see our profession projecting. I have to conceal it behind a girlie mag when I’m reading it.
Steve Mills

I love it! It’s a great improvement.
Malcolm Jewell

Thanks for the e-mail alert sent via the Actuarial Profession. It prompted me to have a look at your website and I was impressed. Keep up the good work. E-mail alerts are great.

I generally don’t pay much attention to the goings-on of the Profession, as my work is governed by the South African Financial Services Board. However, I am a voracious sudoku player (as is my managing director), and your online sudoku development leaves us feeling far more actuarial than we have in a long time! Congratulations on taking the Profession even deeper into the electronic age.
Alastair John Sellick

Congratulations on the new magazine, it looks really good and is a real move forward for the profession.
