It's good thanks... I'm at Stellenbosch.

The market is pretty big, there are a lot of actuaries in the country, but I think there's still room for more marketing and exposure to the career, which I think they're working on.

But we don't have our own authorities, like the SOA in the usa, (although they might be in place by 2010), so we write the Faculty/Institute's exams... and the biggest problem I have right now is finding material to practice on for some of the subjects. :(
