- your generally correct technical arguments. Not that people that don't believe your numbers don't have, but that I really don't find in them a valid technical reason definitely empeaching your numbers to be right.

Just one thing, I just _CAN'T_STAND_ the musical soundtrack in the dubaimegaprojects videos. I always have to turn the sound off. It wrecks my brain. Don't you have some jazz, local music (like in Imre Solt's car ) or even good electro. Chemical brothers, air or tosca should be a good compromise, no ?

Vincent.
I love those tunes....however....I did not produce the video....it's dubaiflo who put it together. dubaimegaprojects.com was inspired by the video, not directly related in any way....although I'd love some input into V3

Not right...Burj Dubai is not yet a building...it is a structure maybe..whe it will be finnished then we can call it a building ..implicitly WTB..personnaly I haven't sow before a building without glass on it..so I will call it a structure....

and BTW ..we'll not have any new WT record maybe SWFC (that is uncertain) this year..because records are establiched only for towers..that are finnished..and Burj Dubai woun't be finnished to soon...only after that it will clame the WT records

So Burj Dubai can only be called WTB when it is topped out and all external work like cladding, landscaping and external works near base etc is finished???

If so SWFC may be tallest to roof but only for a short time???

Any estimate when Burj Dubai will be topped out??? 2008 or early 2009???

Apologies if these questions have been asked here before.
