That's because the mobile app allows you to set a different number of posts per page

While we are on the subject of mobile app, I luv SSC Forums App for Ipad/Iphone! It's pretty good imo. I don't work for them. lol.

I like it because you can subscribe to all the threads that you are interested in and you can set it to alert you when a new post has been posted in real time. That way I will never miss a post from any of you freaks. Another app I tried is tapatalk but my preference is the SSC Forum app.

On page 2500! So excited!

And anyway, why are those tribute lights outside of the WTC? Shouldn't they light them from the pools?

Speaking of lighting the World Trade Center, is there any official word that the antenna will be lit up during 9/11? I'm looking forward to it and all the pictures that will be posted after it, but I will be disappointed if it doesn't get lit up.

And speaking of holidays, will 1 WTC have an inauguration like the Burj Khalifa? I hope it does, becuase seeing a 100 story building lit up in fireworks is fun.

But is it possible that they light it up along the stainless steel edges? Or just put fireworks on every inch of the building? They did that with Taipei 101.

And even if it doesn't light up in fireworks, will it have some kind of ceremony? If so, what kind of ceremony will it have?

Yepp , and yes they are at about 3 blocks south above the Battery Parking Garage at the moment 70 Greenwich St. and Edgar St. to be exact, before the memorial got built the lights were placed at the site but they've moved them ever since the pools got built.

I think that's kind of rude. I hope they remove them and find some kind of alternative, because the first time I saw the lights I never knew those weren't the spots of the twin towers and I thought, "Why would they build One World Trade Center so far from the twin towers' footprints?"

Once I saw the distance from the North pool to One World Trade I realized it was impossible for the light thingys to be in the exact spots of the twin towers.

It's totally not rude, I give them huge respect for even doing it at all.....And what's rude is when I hear people ask, "What club are those spotlights from?"

Set ur DVR's!

NOVA: “Ground Zero Supertower” (PREMIERE) – Sept. 11 at 9pm (ET) on PBS (check local listings).

NOVA kicks off the fall season with a return to Ground Zero to witness the final chapter in an epic story of engineering, innovation, and the perseverance of the human spirit: the completion of One World Trade Center. “Ground Zero Supertower” examines the new skyscraper rising up 104 stories and 1,776 feet from the site where the Twin Towers once stood. In this update of NOVA¹s Emmy-nominated special Engineering Ground Zero, which featured behind-the-scenes access to the struggles of the engineers and architects working at 1 WTC and the National September 11 Memorial and Museum, NOVA goes inside the construction of the tower¹s final floors and the installation of its soaring, 800-ton spire and beacon. NOVA also goes underground to see another engineering marvel taking shape here: the construction of a multi-billion dollar museum that will house artifacts from 9/11. The greatest test is still to come, though: Will the final product be a fitting site for national remembrance?
