No I think he meant because of all the dirt that's constantly covering that camera.

The dirty which would really worth to be cleaned is the one in the WTC's cladding, but the pouring rain is not giving truce.

Today I saw that all of his pics in his SSP gallery were erased. He said there it was done by imageshack because they changed their policies. He also said that he will reupload them somewhen in the future

So this has probably been asked before, but just curious, exactly what type of structure is 1wtc? I know the old twin towers were tubular, and their strength came from the outside columns which acted as bracers, like a stick of celery. The old towers got most of their strength from the outside columns, and did not have many interior columns so as to free up more office space..1wtc looks to have an-all glass facade. Does it have a rigid steel skeleton as well, I know it has strong interior concrete reinforced columns and beams? I heard somewhere that 1wtc's exterior facade is merely superficial, that it gets its strength from the interior, unlike in the old twin towers. Is this more akin to older skyscrapers like the ESB? Thanks.
