    Hi, another TX pool owner

    Hi all,

    This seems like a great site. I have been lurking for a couple weeks and decided to join after realising my first goto site for information was this one.

    I am in the process of choosing my PB (picked up some of the acronyms already).

    Looking forward to get my project started soon and learn as much as I can from this site as I do. I would be glad to share when the time comes.
