So right now I'm at

7/[email protected]>7/[email protected]: 38 panels
7/[email protected]>7/[email protected](6-8h??): 19 panels
7/18#(6-8h??)->7/[email protected](12-15h??): 63 panels

The times are approximate for 18th and 19th. Imre, if you have them...

Given that 7/18th update is in the morning, and that from the shadows, 7/19 seems in the same hours than 7/16-7/17, we can count 7/17->7/19 at a rate of 82 panels in 2 days, or 41 panels a day. Or maybe 40 and 42 respectively.

That would make 38, then 40, then 42 panels... A slowly growing rate.

Vincent.

I will make a big party on saturday to celebrate the biggest the highest and the nicest tower in the world. I will also drink a glass in the health of all the workers all the builders who consecrate their lifes and take every days some risks to erect that beautiful tower. Cheers to all of them

How in the hell are you getting those great pics? (other than being so bloody close). I think part of it is that my lens fogs up immediately when I go outside when I try to take a pic from my hotel balcony, so all I get is haze. It is amazing how much taller the Burj Dubai is than that rose thingie with the ball on top!
