Is that it? I don't know why, but I was expecting something far more dramatic. What do people think? The numbers are big, but does it look good? I have some doubts about the aesthetics here, it looks a bit bland.

Higher quality here -

http://www.dxbae.com/images/Burj%208k%20x%2016k.jpg

Same size as the one linked to earlier, just less jpg compression.

(It is however only around 1/15th the number of pixels of the full version though)

Page count is dependent on the posts-per-page preference. (This is the 802th page for me.)
