Sorry for SSP being down guys, there is a nasty bug in the system!
Won't be back on for at least 16 hours as of now, so back tomorrow!
System will be upgraded whilst it's down.

Thanks all members for your patience.

Imre, thanks again for all your hard work and traveling for these amazing shots! For your third batch of the shots from today (the four on this page), the second one down from the top is especially breathtaking! I don't know how far away from the BDLH and Old Town you are (though tons of grey dirt seems to imply the edge of the construction area to an extent), but for some reason, the skyline just gives that shot a great sense of scale.

Having been to the CN Tower a couple times, I'm just trying to imagine looking at that. Wow.

Nice to have you back!

Yes, I've managed to crack the new double firewall and they've closed the old 808 port so I've found a new back door.
I've created a new IP forceware program that will let anyone (I choose) to be able to safely enter the Burj Dubai mainframe database (untraceable and shadowed) and see it as it happens (including all of the internal CCTV feeds)

It makes the server think you have full authentication certificates and a authorized password.

Oh, I'm still shadowed on Greg Sangs email list as a recipient by the way (they never found that!)

Putting the info on the website though is now a no no, as people here are never pleased and bitch about the morals of accessing it and putting on the web for all to see, which is why the Samsung Corporation are watching my ass at the moment!

We have an understanding, they find ways of stopping me from getting it, I get it anyway but agree to not share it with peasants!

That is not code for all and sundry to PM me asking for info because you won't get it FULL STOP!

Snippetts of info will be sent to those who need to know and do something constructive with it!

Lotta fun, lotta fun as we say!!!

James, it looks that BD is truly at floor 150. This is to say that the walls of 149 are poured upto the ceiling of 149 which is the floor of 150. Officially speaking the walls of 149 must be poured into the forms that are presently upto 150. If the forms are still hollow or unpoured, then BD is not structurally higher than CN. What I mean to say is the forms are not part of the structure itself. Still visually speaking BD looks to be at 1822 ft or 555m.

Can anybody confirm that the forms upto 150 as we see are poured?

If it is not at 12:00 then it is at 11:59:57



Skytower, give us any info you are able to give. Also can you update your height listing on Dubaimegaprojects?

Yep,

Lotta fun, lotta fun.

Those floors way up in the building; levels 140 through 150 are pretty good size floors, when you consider what level they are at. There has never been anything like this before.
