Go Magnus!

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..

And FIDE now updates 12 times a year! And even rates rapids and blitz' :)

Rolfo: Sokrates, I think Carlsen has developed greatly also as a human being at all. He also has a sense of humor. But most of all he is a chess genius. He can't compete in being social and classy all the time. When he answers or acts akwardly, he usually has endured some akward situation or
