Do you have the same problem or just someone wants to hack my account ?
When logging in you can select if you want to stay logged in.

And it sort of depends on your browser. It actually is the setting of your browser. If you have it delete cookies/passwords every time you close it, then that is your problem.

Weird...

I've only had to type everything in about 10 times the whole time I've had this account (once for every cpu I've used)

As I remember - the price was around DHS 700/- they claim it to be gold plated.

Be careful - there have been coordinated attacks on forums in the past where users are directed to a log-in page that looks exactly like the proper site, but is actually a slightly different spelling (e.g. something like skyscraperclty.com).

It's to harvest user names and passwords.

I doubt this is what's going on, but you never know.

Do you know what else is amazing? Burj Khalifa, which happens to be this thread. Surprisingly here we post stuff on Burj Khalifa and not other supertalls!

PS: Imre thank you very much for the beautiful pictures! I hope you don't mind me asking, but how regularly do you take pictures of the whole city and how long does it take from the first picture until uploading them here?

Let me tell you that taking, resizing/adjusting and uploading pictures, takes hours and hours.

Thanks for responding Imre and yet again I am speechless by the latest pictures.

Sounds like a lot of work. Thank you for your contribution. I might head out tomorrow armed with a camera and contribute some of my own. They won't be as good as yours, but will do my best.

I think Imre deserves honorary medal or something from UAE government for promoting Dubai as a tourist attraction all those years. Great pics!
