That depends entirely on the number of updates per day. For a
reasonably large race (say, control of 40 planets) in a game with 70
star systems or so (3-8 planets per system), it will take you at least
one hour of playing time per update (this is vastly dependent upon how
efficient you are...use macros!). This can go way up if you are
actively waging war with another player. This time tends to increase
as the game goes on and you grow in power, but the main variable in
the whole time equation is simply how active _you_ want to be. It
takes a very active race to come out on top in gb; even on a one
update per day schedule, it can eat up your time, so consider yourself
warned. GB 5.0 HUT server includes many time saving features, so it is
easiest version to play if time tends to come a problem.

Players who join only to play for a little while and then drop out,
leaving all that they've built to fall into ruin, are generally
frowned upon. Sometimes it is unavoidable, but all deities ask that
you plan ahead. Don't get yourself involved in more than you can
handle. Drop-out players who don't get replacements can seriously
upset the game balance, ruining the game for many other players.

The advent of team races may offset both of these disadvantages, but
it's still best to be aware of them.

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.
