Just a word on 'Al Burj' and it's proposed height of 1,200m:

If I was the ruler of Dubai, I'd insist on Burj Dubai having the "World's Tallest" crown for a while, and not be challenged by another one just down the road. The beauty of Burj Dubai is that noone knows the final height - all we know is that it'll be the tallest, and NOT 1200m tall. If this 'Al Burj' gets approval and building starts within the next 12-18 months then you might as well stick Burj Dubai up your arse ..... all the fun & hype about would be gone instantly. So what's the point?

Let Burj Dubai hold the title until it gets challenged in say 10 years time (maybe by some Chinese city), and let Al Burj then try to re-challenge that.

Cheers

Thanks Cullwulla, but isn't 30 floors of unhabitable space alot? I mean this isn't NORAD that they need so much room for mechanical and communications. also, won't be there 5 so called mechanical floors for all of that equipment before the concrete level is topped out. Why not add offices in the steel structure. Concrete pumping up that high is understandable but having actuall offices/residential space in the steel frame doesn't defy the laws of physics.

so let me get this straight.. even though the building could have 160 something floors plus 30 something floors for the steel structure. It won't be officially be referred to as a 190 story building. it will only be recognized as having 160 something floors to the concrete level?
yes thats correct. it will have officially 160 floors but all so about 4-5 mez levels that arent included, so really it will have 165. as for the levels in steel section, well they are "levels" but not inhabitable and only some will have plant commuincations ect. most are actually there just so maintence can get access to spire sections.
thats great skytower for the tip off. i was getting used to 818m. i reckon they should extend 5m to 823m, that way its exactly 2700feet.;-)

I've been a naught boy!

Guess someone really high up has complained and removed my domain registration from the records....it now has a block on it.

I'll be quickly covering my tracks and creating some shadows and pinging my DNS and IP settings around the world to get this info back online.

I guess I'll have to clone myself (electronically speaking)

If I can hack into a block....I can hack out of it.....in theory!

Dude, everyone knows who you are in real life. Not sure how you can wriggle out of this one. Good luck though...

In this world, if you don't respect other people's business, they won't respect yours.

Not an easy lesson to learn.

DNS settings masked and domain name now cloned and shadowed.

Should just be a case of uploading it all again and hey presto!!!

Now I'd like to see any government/union/body trace that MOFO and delete it now!

That'll spoil their Cornflakes in the morning!

Now you are just being silly. For five bucks you can get the full DNS registration history of a domain, and see that it was registered to you.

This is what happens when an underwear model becomes a hacker

Judging by the precautions you took with your first site, there is a 100% chance that I am laughing right now.

That's not what bothers me....just that I can get things back on again.

It would cost someone too much to think about taking me to court over this......that's how I can be so cheeky!
