- I spent five wonderful years (1964 – 1969) at RIT.
- I’ve spent 20 years trying to keep the RIT spirit alive and well.
- The smiles and the occasional “Thank you” notes from the sayas, sayamas, and alums keep me going the extra mile.
- 320+ students attended the first ever 2nd BE in 1964, and most of them graduated in 1969.
- 88 (roughly 1 in 4) are now GBNF.
- Many of the EE sayas who taught us are also GBNF.
- Thanks to U Khin Maung Zaw (EC 76) and Ko Wunna Ko Ko (EC 98) for their expertise, metta, cetana, and passion in designing and implementing the two ex-RIT web sites.
- I am sad to learn about a saya who passed away after having Alzheimer. Saya forgot to take meals regularly. Saya’s spouse was busy taking care of saya, and discovered too late that she had a medical problem. Both passed away within a few weeks.
- While I still have reasonably good memory and health, I am trying to share my experience, knowledge, and aspirations with sayas and colleagues.
- I have posted articles in http://www.ex-rit.org, Facebook pages, lifelongteraning140.wordpress.com and hlamin,com. They include (a) 40+ “Memories of UCC (b) “64 “Count down to Reunion-2000” (c) 36 “Post Reunion-2000” (d) 1600+ “Trivia”.
- Please provide suggestions, comments, and errata.
- With your help, we might massage the raw contents into reasonably good books (digital and printed). For example, one book could cover RIT, UCC, SPHS and University Engineering Education, while the other book could cover general topics.
