Oh my God, the Shard is now visible from my front window!

I've never loaded pics on the forum before but now I have no excuse. Just need to dig that camera out and buy new batteries...

What I like about this building is that it's not designed to be (metaphorically)shiny and sparkly unlike many of the tallest under constriction buildings of this day. It really is fitting, effective, and nice looking.

I'm not sure I understand about the height of this core. Floor 27 is showing today but, Culwulla, your diagram suggests that floor 29 was already showing yesterday, surely?

Looking closely at the monument web cam the height seems to match the diagram. Growing quick!

Sounds like a good idea to me. A bot or a troll.

It's not about what he says. It's about the invisible 0 by 0 pixel picture in his post. You can see the link (going to amazon in this case) if you are trying to quote him. Everytime somebody quotes him the picture gets loaded and gets a ''hit" and he/she gets money.



A warning of this should really be a sticky at the top of every section! People should be aware of this!
And to stop this, Jan shouldn't allow 0 by 0 pixel images.

Great to see the core on the move again. It's getting up there.
