So, technically, 7WTC is still taller than Tower One, even with column splice installed, right?

No one said this would be easy or painless.
Well I'll be rounding up to 750'... call it a tie.

That's kinda weird, how the glass is almost invisible at the right angle and lighting.
Should keep the office fraternization down, I guess.

Does anyone know if the high-def earthcam is still up? I saved a picture recently and it only came out to about 150kb, instead of the 1.0mb it usually is. I miss the details of the site...

That is my view, assuming that was the pic you were referring to.

You needn't kill a man but I'll entertain any exorbitant offers
