    Re: how long .../how much time ...?

    If you said "How much time ...?", I would expect an answer in hours. If you ask "How long ...?" I would expect an answer in days, weeks, months or even years.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
