Yup, all three of them. They've been so busy posing for celebratory photographs they haven't had time to put on any more panels yet.

That building's gonna be awful drafty then. I'd hate to be working there in a cubicle when a sandstorm came in.

Could this be nothing more than another facade test?

Looks like there are placed many different mock-ups on the stories where they've begun placing teh facade. For example, a piece of interior wall, HVAC systems, painting etc. Can anybody tell me more about this? Are they testing all the build-in components??

This one has a ridiculous amount off 1150+ posts.....

Its not good for archiving and for the servers to have so much data in one thread so smear it out in other threads to ease the servers and have a smooth ride....

I_Am_Hydrogen said to keep this thread going and not open a new one. The new one will probably be removed.

Threads will be kept open until they reach 5000 posts. It's a myth that the server cannot handle large threads. In reality, only the most recent posts are loaded each time a thread is viewed, not the entire thread.

OWNED

The thread was "beautiful" and you "worked hard for it"? I think you need to re-evaluate some things in your life.
