  1. Oh my goodness! a fantastic article dude. Appreciate it However My business is experiencing problem with ur rss . Don’t know why Unable to sign up to it. Possibly there is anybody getting identical rss difficulty? Anybody who knows kindly respond. Thnkx


  2. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the structure of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?


  3. Great List. Do you have info on characters beyond the top 250? Why did you cut it at 250? Do you have data about where each character is mentioned. It would be great to do character studies by reading just those sections where a particular character was mentioned. What did you count as mentioned? By name, by nickname, by title, by pronoun?
