Both the client and server code is available under the Galactic Bloodshed
Project at SourceForge. <http://gbp.sourceforge.net>

The code you'll find there is tarred and gziped, so you'll need to know a
little bit about manipulating Unix files in order to set things up.

*** IMPORTANT ***

When you are ftping a binary file (ie: ends with .gz), you MUST set the
file transfer mode to binary! Most ftp programs and web browsers will
handle this automatically. However, if, for some reason, you do not
transfer the file in binary mode, it will be corrupt. If you experience
a problem unzipping or uncompressing a file, this is the problem 99% of
the time. Simply re-download the file in binary mode.

Here's a helpful example: Suppose you ftp gbII-2.6.0.tar.gz

First: gunzip gbII-2.6.0.tar.gz (gives you gbII-2.6.0.tar)
Next: tar -xf gbII-2.6.0.tar (separates out all the files)
Then: delete the original tar file if you wish.

Info on these processes can be found in your system's help files, but
if you continue to have problems, post your questions to alt.games.gb
newsgroup or connect to one of the running gb games as guest and ask
around for help. This is usually the first best thing to try when you
have any problems. After all, the players have all had to go through
the same things you will in order to get set up in gb.

Once the files are in your directory in a conventional format, there
will be help files and so forth included. It's a good idea to print
the help docs out and have them handy when you play.

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.
