I don't normally have to do too much scrolling on my 2560x1600 monitor. Looks like I'm going to have to get a bigger one. Damn!

I would guess that the picture is a vertical panorama made of four shots taken with some Hasselblad 39Mpix camera.

4x39 = ~160Mpix. It's cropped so it is a little smaller than full 160Mpix...

No new pictures from the top and from the base? Where are the photographers Imre and Old Town Resident?

What the hell are you talking about. The latest pictures are from just 2 days ago, even one from Old Town Resident.

How can you be that needy for pictures? We get pretty much daily updates but when there are no pictures for a few hours people get upset.

Give them at least a few days break! Don't need a picture for every new beam getting up!

Hi all.

As far as pics go there is all kinds out there if you take the time to look as the 15,785 in my collection can attest to ...

Arabian Business has 8 new articles from 08 04 20 on the MEP of the Burj. Some interesting stuff and facts / figures. A few MEP related pics also.

For those that don't know AB has an entire section in special reports on just the Burj. Lots of articles, timeline, etc.

Link.

Great articles! Thanks for the link!

I like to hear more about the MEP. How is the cold water generated? (green?) Where? Whats on the MEP floors? Where comes the air in - where does it go out..

Maybe someone has got pics..
