    RIP, Engineer

    I just got word that one of my best friends at college, back in the mid-Eighties, passed away. PhD EE from ISU. For those of you aspiring engineers out there, this is what you want to be--and he did so while escaping a difficult time in his homeland.

    To me, this is what being a Cyclone is really all about.

    Rest in Peace, Dr. Ali Safaei-Nili

    Given the CF theme, I should mention that he also represented ISU--in Mathematics competitions.
