Jun-11-06  Castle In The Sky: The biography is incorrect Mr. Hoenlinger died on March 12, 1990.

  Benzol: <Castle In The Sky> You meant it was incomplete, right?


Jul-07-06  makaveli52: 1928 to 1955 looks way off, just look at the bio .... born 1905
Jul-07-06  dzanone: That puts his first important game that was recorded at the age of 23. Seems reasonable.
Jul-07-06  makaveli52: err my bad disregard my previous post, confused myself

  keypusher: Unfortunately this is his only game that I know.

  Marmot PFL: < Castle In The Sky> The strain of 213 games at once was too much for him.

  Abdel Irada: A pity. Baldur had such a promising career before Loki came along.
