The more I look at the pictures of what Dubai will look in the future, the more I'm convinced it's a tribute to American design and concept and sensibility. It's like a mix of New York, Chicago, Miami and Las Vegas. Nothing European, Latin American or Asian about this place. No wonder American architects ere hired. It has an almost Disney-like grandeur. When I last in Dubai, several years ago, it was still a hot, dusty desert town ... my, has it grown!

Skytower, who ever you are...you better pull those documents off public view. Many of those are strictly confidential documents and constitute gross violation on someone's part. You may be above the law, sitting far away from site, but your source may not be lucky. Take my advice and pull them off from public view.

They always were on public view along with the other 11,500 PDF's I have since 2004.

I've just gathered them together and put them in one place!

The internet is for sharing...I know this because I've been using it before there was a World Wide Web...when it was just primerilly a military extranet....which even then I would "LOOK" into (I really dislike the word hack...not many people in the world can do what I do)

I have multiple link farms, my IP addresses can be shadowed, ID's can be masked and nobody can remove what I have spread over 60 load balanced Linux servers.

I also have hard copies on hard drives, blue-ray and mini disk.

I can even see the Burj Dubai's internal and external CCTV systems in real time and have it as my desktop video DreamScene background!

Sorry, this stuff is in my playground now....."The Matrix"

...as for my source....well he lives 3000 miles further away from it than I do!

Duboy, you are attached to this project, right? Do the "powers that be" know about this? Considering how obsessed with secrecy they are, I can only imagine....
