I used to keep a list of this, but it's just too much of a pain. The
best way to keep track of which games are running (or about to be) is
to watch the alt.games.gb newsgroup. It's very low volume, so that
should be no problem. The FAQ gets out of date too quickly and easily
in any case.

Once you get a server address and part, use the following examples to
connect you to a game with telnet if you're not using a client. If
you're using a client, simply replace "telnet" with "gbII" or whatever
you've named the client executable in your directory. on Unix: "telnet
pooh.caltech.edu 2010" or "telnet 131.215.48.30 2010" or, on VMS:
"telnet pooh.caltech.edu /PORT=2010" etc.

Note: Some of these games are chronically off-line for one reason or
another; others are only up at certain (unknown to me) scheduled
times. Don't be surprised if you get a refused connection by more than
one game. If you want to enter one or more of the games that have not
started yet, check alt.games.gb for announcements about where to send
your requests.

Other games will be announced in alt.games.gb as they are started,
including periodic "blitz games" run by various people. A blitz game
is essentially a gb game in which the updates are squeezed down into 5
to 20 minute intervals as opposed to the usual 1 or 2 per day. If
you're wondering what an "update" is, read section III about playing
the game.

If you make a few life style changes you shulod be able to lose some weight if you need to lose weight. However, your height is determined mainly be genetics. This is a system that has worked well for me for overall weight loss and fitness, and several friends have also been successful with it.1. Eat three nutritious meals and three snacks everyday. Cut out junk food. You probably need about 1500 to 1800 calories a day. Many people make the mistake of not eating enough when they try to lose weight and then become discouraged.2. Drink lots of water at least 8 big glasses as day. Lots of water is essential. Stop drinking soda and other drinks with useless calories. Eat fresh fruit instead of fruit juices the juices are very high in calories.3. Begin a simple weight lifting program at home or at a gym. Ordinary household items (tins of soup, for example) can actually serve as weights for beginners. Buy yourself a good weight lifting book for women. Actually the dummies series of books has done a rather good one.4. Walk, walk, walk. Buy yourself a pedometer and aim for 10,000 steps a day.5. Record everything you eat and all your exercise to make sure you have a calorie deficit . Two of the sites I've included will help you do that. Basically buring more calories than you take in leads to weight loss. You need a deficit of 3500 calories to lose one pound.6. If you drive, do less of it and park at the back of the parking lot instead of close to the door. Always use stairs never the elevator or escalator.7. A mini stepper is an easy piece to equipment to have at home and gives great results. I bought mine at a second hand store for $4. even if you use it for a minute or two several times a day it can make a big difference.I hope these thoughts help. You can do this. Good luck with it.
