Hi all.

Nice update OTR. Any and all pics of this magnificent structure are greatly appreciated.

I see youtube changed their site. I was wondering why I couldn't download anything with vdownloader anymore. Anyone interested - I just got Free youtube download from DVDVideoSoft - works great and you can save in AVI. ( google it ) Just dloaded a dozen new vids I never had. That new vid posted above looks like level 153 to me - amazing vid it is.

^ I'd be careful of downloading stuff from there. There are reports of spyware/browser exploits on that site.

Thanx wj.

I am well protected - I have near 80 vids from there on the Burj. Most "exploits" would probably be on the more popular vids - but I will keep diligent.

Here is a link to some great shots from 08 02 21 posted at SSP by Kirre. View original size.

I have realplayer and if I move the pointer over a youtube video it shows a download button to save the video.
