That's quite a funny interview. How on earth did you get it? Did the press contact you through skyscrapercity?

P.S And as an owner of an old VHS of Critters, you have a great taste in movies!

Hi all.

Looks good on ya Cul.

As for all the height increase articles ...

Notice those came out at the same time as the articles stating Sept '09 completion date. They are just releasing to the public what we have known for many months. Remember much info on these forums was not publicly released.

As for the new height update on the official site ...

Thanks Cul.

I really enjoy interpreting the plans and prints and collating the info to my BD Plan, tier Methodology, and pic to plan comparisons.

I am pleased that I could be some help to your diagram Cul. Your skills really illustrate the info into something all can understand. I feel some of the time my posts are too complex and in-depth for many. Diagrams speak to all even if they don't want to get too deep.

Skymyhusband - beauty shots man - thanks for posting

Cunning Linquist - I gotta say that is the best forum handle ever dude.

Is that pic really real? Looks like a painting - or is it just cleaver computer manipulation?

That pic is spectacular!!
little bit of PS adjustment can work magic

think I made a new record of backround-image-inserting
precisely 2secs from first viewing and till it was on my desktop

Cul, awesome article haha, you have become a legend amongst us scraper-perverts, allso thought the cupboard size model thing sounded a bit weired, must be the oddest volume ratio for a mini city ahaha

on quiz for the pros, wasnt there somewhere a mini railway or metro allso going into DBD? and then even through businessbay? And if a rail passes close to the burj they better make sure to have some windows on the ceiling,,,, to prevent to much of face-grease on the windows if you knowattamean

Yeah, this is a real picture, that consists three of pictures (probably). The technic which allows taking pictures like that one is called HDR (High DynamiC Range).
