We could meet at the Aqua-Tek and celebrate with Bruce, Will and Marcus at Senator Hegar's change of heart on the white list !
I've been wanting a planted tank club in Austin for years now and you're right, we have the numbers to do it. I would love the extra socializing and the trading. I don't know why we don't.
"You are much better off with no numbers than meaningless ones. The minute you believe numbers uncritically, that is, without understanding how they're calculated and how well they measure whatever they're supposed to measure, you will generate a breed of employee who will produce numbers and not results. Your data-processing system will then serve not to describe reality but to lie about it."
We do seem to have enough if the Amazonia thread is any indication. I belong to the Austin chapter of a haunters group and they have meet and greets at area restaurants or bars,this could be an idea for this so no one has to open up their house. The Aqua-tek meet is also an idea but I don't know how they would feel about us loitering
