    Great work, looks really good.

    Just a quick comment. Not sure how you have put together these documents, but have you used the same method for all the whole of the pdf file?

    For example, the text on page 13(last part of the magic squares article) looks completely different to that on page 14(start of Hayden McQueenie's article).

    Another thing, the equations in "On the Cauchy Bound for the Roots of Polynomials" are rendered perfectly, however the ones in the magic square article (page 8 for example) do not render half as good.

    It kind of looks like you have just merged several different pdf files into one.

    I know this is probably a bit picky and please don't take it the wrong way, I just think the presentation should be as good as the excellent content in the magazine.

    Looking forward to finishing off the magazine.

    The Magic squares and the Cauchy bound paper are both Word (or rather Open Office) documents as is the rest of the issue other than Hayden's paper. The equations have been set with the Open Office equation editor for the Cauchy bound paper and as text (or as image files I forget which) in the Magic squares paper. Hayden;s paper was in LaTeX which in order to create a single PDF I had to include as page images. All of this was put into a single file OOo file to get uniform headers and footers and exported as a PDF.

    As I have said elsewhere I am not happy with this as a production method and the intention is that the next issue will all be converted to LateX then merged and compiled to a PDF. This will entail a lot more work but will be more satisfactory than how issue 1 was produced.

    I don't know because all my machines are permanently logged into those accounts, that is why I am interested in if people can access them by just clicking on the links, if people can't then I won't use that location again (I thought I had made that account readable by all)

    First of all this is really cool.

    I've found a somewhat embarrassing typo though: on page 14, the title reads "MULTIPLE VARIABLE REGRESION" missing an S, which stands out because it is, after all, the title.

    My guess is that it was not spell checked because it is in all caps; this happens to me frequently with OOo.

    Of course I'm not here to find fault, it seemed worth mentioning because it could represent a logistical problem that could be easily fixed.

    Kudos to all contributors, editor(s), etc.

    It is nothing to do with OOo, that was typeset in LaTeX as mentioned elsewhere. The spell checker in WinShell and TeXmaker (I don't recall which I used to compile the article now) should have picked it up and I had thought that I had checked (though I may not have paid too much attention as so many errors were flagged because of language settings and so I may have missed it).
