Hi all.

WTS ..... - FanF*%&ingTastic !!!

Watching this thing grow is bitchin'. Thanx to all the contributers here.

After this the next milestone is 3 more columns of 6.4 m. and we will have the tallest manmade structure in history.

After that another 150 odd m. into the sky. The lifting proceedure should be a sight to behold.

Like ABC I also wonder if that new platform is for a smaller crane. It does not look big enough to be the single crane that will continue the steel upward. We shall see though.

Congratulations, Burj Dubai, an impressive structure indeed.

Anyone know when the Armani Hotel would be open?

I didn't mean that. I am very very and very afraid of some disaster to this building. And if happend so, it would be definitely a record too.

But keep on smilin . I hope nothing bad will happen.

Hey what can I say but

Lotta fun, lotta fun.

First time in about 50 years the worlds tallest structure is actually freestanding. I would like to see Guinness' entry next year. By that time BD would have the all time record.
