The spur for live rating:

On Magnus Carlsen page Nov 04-07:

"Rolfo: <of course, the above will change during the last 3 rounds>, that means frogbert, you are in position to keep us updated on rating changes "live" :) Even if you don't, I think FIDE's 3 month update is slow..

Runde's live rating:

By now the instantly update is done by

Rolfo: BOSTER, whether it is luck or not it happens that the godess of good fortunes smiles :)
