    I predict a change in my rating of zero or more, and I predict a change of zero or less.

    Aren't you missing some ampersands or tildes or something? There are two 'ands', and they are mutually exclusive
    There is no cure for leftism. Its infestation of the host mostly diminishes with age except in the most rabid of specimens.

    Could you bold both "and"s, I really can't see two!

    I predict my rapid rating will pass my normal one.
    So what's your excuse? To run like the devil's chasing you.

    Can't. Coz you didn't. I did the post on the fly. But aren't you stating two positives (predictions) that will both exist, yet are mutually exclusive?

    Yup. I knew that. Hoped you wouldn't go that bolt-hole. Then again perhaps it was no bolt-hole and that's what's you meant. In fact knowing you, I reckon it was.

    You win that one (on the technicality front as well - in that my original suggestion is busted)

    Correct. I expect to play no games this period. Of course my rating could change anyway if there is a correction or something.

    Not hard

    Not difficult this one - I predict that my standard rating will go down (even if there is some correction applied across the board).

    Barry's calculator says +8, who knows really....

    The link to Barry's Calculator is:

    http://www.bjcox.com/modules.php?name=Glicko_Calc

    for those unaware. It in no way promises to tell you what your change will actually be, but is good as a rough guide

    Take care and God Bless, Macavity
