I am sorry to inform you that the forum member that you all knew as Zensteeldude died from injuries sustained in an auto accident on April 20th, the day before his 49th birthday.

Know that his wife and three children are alive and well and coping with this tragedy as best they can. This is the LAST post from Zen. God bless us all.

Two towers and several lowrise buildings have more floorspace than 4 skyscrapers rising from around 300m to 500m?

Very sorry to hear that, this is no easy turn of events. I wish your family strength in this time of grief.

I suppose if his SSC login (pw) hadn't been active, we might not have found out.

I too am sorry about this. He was a major contributor to these sites, but more importantly, being who he was in the real world. A father, husband and the whole works. May God speed his love.

I got the "heart in hand " to learn of this tragedy. It's a shame he has left his family and all your friends. Unfortunately, he was not told of the death of Osama, and can not see the conclusion of the World Trade Center among other projects. Rest in peace Zen!
