Sky, you are my favorite storyteller. You are 31, speak 7(?) languages fluently, have 30(?) companies, wife ecetera. Yet you hack into computers to steal private information, have deep geek knowledge and advertise Bush and financial stuff on your so called ad free site (with the revenue its generating you will need several million years to catch up your father..). I'm student, i'm paying xxx$/month for hosting my site, hence i need ads (but i refused private donation offers).
Btw, your story about your "father" is also quite amusing:
Alan Murphy: Ranking: 295= Worth: £200m Industry: Toilet rolls and property
http://business.timesonline.co.uk/to...h_list_search/

Now, i would advice to open a "Skys life" topic at over SSP, and leave this one for BURJ DUBAI.

Daniel, for someone who's supposedly into SEO you should know what reciprocal backlinking does for Google ranking?
Those link pages boosted my other new sites indexing as they were being hit by an established site.
It is a non profit website and no adverts will be appearing in the new flash version...period.
That issue is for UK held monies...not total wealth. Paper and property were much later when he returned to the UK, the other 450 million will be non taxable in Swiss accounts from the Gaming Industry (he owned 20 or so Casino's in South Africa...but it doesn't show that in print)
Also, for tax reasons he spends 9 months of the year in Monaco, not the UK. He's the 14 richest person in Monaco...and I could go on and on as there is undisclosed amounts all over the place...just as I have.
Anyway, I offered you free web hosting but you declined...so stop moaning!

Here's one taken by Imre in January, the Dusit Hotel (the first building with an arch through it on the left on the previous picture) is now blocked at this angle by the Rose Rotana (the tall thin building left of center) You can see the Index Tower (the cheese wedge) on the left, with the Burj Dubai poking out behind it.




....looking back the other way.....(The Dusit hotel will be on Imre's right shoulder in the picture)

Thats the point Sky, i have a life, so i cannot spend all my day making up things like reciprocal linking is working with irrelevant content sites (dubai != mortgage), and that the 2008 rich list is outdated, and Google Adsense / Bush is backlinking! What an utter nonsense.

edit: Don't edit your posts, otherwise it doesn't make sense what i'm writing... thanks.

Incredible photos. They seem even more incredible when you realise that many of these buildings only 1 year ago they didnt existed at all, and that where it was simply nothing more than desert, now the tallest skycraper on earth exists. Amazing, i think that Dubai is a modern miracle.

Love it. Is that Dubai's light rail system that's under construction and is there going to be an easy rail link to Burj Dubai? I wonder how far a person would have to walk to get from the tower to the train station here.

There's a Metro Station right in front of Burj Dubai and it will be connected with the tower's plazza with a Air Conditioned covered sky bridge, probably with electric pathways as well.

Ok, just kidding

By the way, Dubai should have some kind of Base-Jumping festival. There have been Base-Jumping festivals in Shanghai and Kuala Lumpur.
Here are some videos:
Petronas Tower
Jin-Mao

I think it would be great advertising for Dubai. And what is more awesome than the longest free-fall from the tallest tower in the world!
