    • Thanks for your advice. I will change it. The problem with these not-so-known characters is that there is no way of checking if the information on the internet is correct if you don’t know how the person looks like. The year of birth is an even bigger problem. I will update my blogg as soon as I can, but I have several others that take precedent. I wish there were more hours in a day.
