On that note Lupin (I know it's a type of flowering annual shrub but vinouz will try and tell me that it's a misspelling of the french word for "rabbit"...) ....but I'm looking at the BD's podium CCTV camera and they're actually for the first time installing cladding at night!

Oo er!

No, and I will tell you that it's also not Remus Lupin from Harry Potter, and you'll have to guess what Lupin it actually is.

Also, are any of the posted documents considered 'company sensitive' ? It seems like you have some sort of unwritten permission to do this from someone. Who?

well seen as the thread seems to have gone completely to pot, it only remains for me to point out that lupins are the flowers dennis moore steals from the rich in the classic monty python sketch.

Would that happen to be Arsène Lupin?

It's frankly amazing. Sky Tower has brought quite a lot to our table here.

And to Sky: while I heavily criticize your "hax0r" (ph34r ph34r) attitude and your tendency to try to prove a lot (which is annoying to say the least), I still recognize that the documents you recently brought are indeed interesting.

So let's give back what belongs to you: thanks for these. And let's move on.

Thanx again Skytower for the excellent stuff you give us. Thanx also for others showing some appreciation.

With that said please don't hesitate to give us any other info you see fit Sky.
From early earthworks / piling / raft info to info from yesterday - it's all good !



Enjoy.

I totally agree... although im not surprised coz ive seen most the docs before.

cheers sky!

This thread is becoming a joke. It's just full of pages of nonsense instead of anything interesting relating to Burj Dubai.

Can I suggest that someone starts a new thread called 'Wankers Arguing About Who Is The Greatest' and some of you can shift your nonsense there and leave the rest of us to follow the progress of Burj Dubai.

Alternatively, someone could start a new thread which is free of all this crap.

There are a couple of you who seem to post multiple times every day, when you don't even have anything to say. It just seems to be an ego trip for you.

I realise the irony of me taking up a post to say all of this, but I have kept my posts to an absolute minimum in the past and only commented when people asked a question relevant to my field of expertise. Would be great if others did the same.

I started a new thread.

http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=505729

I guess we can round this one out to exactly 5000, or people can start posting over at the new one.

there's no need to start a new thread until we have not reached 5000 posts!

I don't have any presence in PC forums. You are talking about someone else.

Can't a moderator delete the pointless replies? I'm usually just a lurker but I signed up to complain. I just want to read discussion on skyscrapers and see photos. Make a general forum for the spammers or something.
