What I dont understand is the names that V has on top of each pic.. is it to signify that the corresponding pics maybe came from that particular user on here?? or is he just naming the different pictures?

Most people would call it off topic (me as well), but at least its somewhat entertaining

hi "V" I see that you are very good at English ..maybe you're English maybe not ..But I do not consider English an art or someting to be proud of ;evreybody knows English to some extent(degree) but by knowing a totaly different language than your own now that is a smart thing (my personal oppinion)

regarding the present topic..nice pictures .. keep up the good work nice to meet you

V happens to be using a number of different dialects of English all of which are defunt in todays speech. One is an Early Modern English from around the Jacobean period. Roughly corresponding to the time of King James I or about the early 1600s. The other appears to match the unctuous style used by the upper classes of revolutionary America.

CORRECT.

Not only the beams are in place but the entire perimeter of the floor seamed to have been completed as per midday today. Only the cross sections bracing were yet to be installed.

So once again: The 5th floor of the steel structure is half completed already. The building is 617.70 meters tall but there are no pictures yet of that (the 5th) floor.

Cul, the 4th floor started one week ago and went up in just 4 - 5 working days while the 5th started on Saturday, a few hours after Imre took his updates and now is already half complete.

I think they finally found their lost mojo.

Great news. Does that mean the sixth floor will be at 629m the week after next? If so celebrations will be heard throughout the forum as Burj Dubai becomes the tallest human made structure on the planet.
