More Carlsen Games

It turned out that the actions I identified in Comparing Carlsen's Early PGN were not as easy as I expected them to be. I found 653 games on NorBase, which included only two events played after 2007. In Carlsen's earliest events (2000-2002), I identified a dozen new games, including an entire tournament.

The main complication, which I still haven't addressed adequately, were the many discrepancies between the header info for games already on file and the games on NorBase. I'll add those early games plus the games from Carlsen's recent events -- London, Norway, and Moscow -- to Magnus Carlsen's Tournament, Match, and Exhibition Record (2000-) the next time I work on the collection.
