Lord Mushroom,
Couple of corrections:

0.05/0.10 at Pacific, by all means, though if your funds are sufficient, you'll find not much difference in skill at 0.25/0.50. That's my experience anyhow. If your aim is to spend/risk the absolute minimum learning the game, then obviously you'll play at the minimum stakes.

Secondly, a 'big bet' is the turn and river bets in limit hold'em, which are twice the big blind.

I don't think it's a matter of 'number of hours' played to get to a certain limit. As mentioned above, to some extent, the skill levels at these low limits don't change massively. Same with NL tournys - I find very little difference in skill levels between $3 and $10 buy-ins. You'll find out quite quickly at the lower limits whether you have a grasp of basic strategy and the discipline to apply it. If you've got the bankroll, you can graduate to 0.50/$1 quite quickly.
