Also it seems mods are confused too since this is the thread with completed status in its title in the U/C forum.
I get really annoyed when people hold a gun to my head and force me to click on the thread every day as well.

So you are saying that as long as nobody is forced to visit this this thread it may stay out of control, right?

Do you know why the extra light was initiated, or who makes those decisions?

My impression had always been that the night appearance of BK was not matching the scale (apart from the flashing during the fountain show).

It's good to see it progessing. Hope other tower will upgrade as well. I saw a two new vertical animations a couple of days ago in BB and on SZR.

No idea, but this "upgrade" had been overdue for a long time.

Before this installation, the Burj never looked right - at night it just disappeared towards the top.

The only annoying thing about it is that I now have a few thousand photos that need to be re-shot!

The thread is still here because the whole of the works is not complete .............
As I posted before it will be posted in - moved or not.

As for me posting old shots .... **** ya then ........
There wasn't any real interest anyway except Altin and I.
I'm not choked, I just thought it would be interesting to post a monthly construction shot for the hell of it and it would give me something to do with some of my shots. It was taking time I didn't really have anyway.

Some indication of completion should come down the pipe - sometime.

Hey Ray -

I was finding it very interesting. I think it would be great to have an "accelerated" construction pic thread now, although I'm not convinced this is the right place for it.

How about starting one in the UAE Photo forum?

Then don't mind random people coming here every week asking why it's still here. Because they will, and because they're right.

A man was hit by a cab in the street. He was brought to the hospital. His wife who was standing

up by his bed, said to the doctor: "I think that he is very ill." "I am afraid that he is

dead."said the doctor,Hearing this, the man moved his head and said: "I'm not dead. I'm still

alive." "Be quiet, "said the wife. "the doctor knows better than you!"
Just then a voice called from outside the door, "If you do, I won't go."

Hi Altin.

I think that is the second major re-design ?

Please correct me if I have it wrong.
There were a few revisions between 2, 3, and 4 as well.

1 - 2003 (Grollo) - 560 meters.



2 - 2004 - ??? meters.



3 - 2005 - 705 meters.



4 - 2006 - 818 meters ( as per the plans).




Ray.
