Wasn't there one other person, for if it wasn't for him, such detailed infomation (AND pics) would be impossible for us to view in our lifetime?

When I lived in Chicago in the mid 80's I constructed a model of the Sears Tower out of empty beer cans. It was similar!!

Thank you for all your hard work in compiling your fantastic and easy to comprehend breakdowns, so us laymen/women for these last few years have had a great insight of what would otherwise not have been available. Who's Sky Tower?
LOL. Hack Nakheel tower for us PLEASE.

If you think that Anomaly actually hacked into the servers like he said he did, I have a bridge in brooklyn to sell you. I wish I could find the old posts where he was telling us about it. They were ludicrous to the point of absurdity. Beats me where he got them, but not from that. Oh, and he's a pathological liar who has already been banned 3 times for it.

Fury,

I appologize to you for my lack of good memory. Now that Bikes has said it, it was Skytower the one who posted on this topic of hacking. I remember those endless pages of posts about how he hacked into the servers. It's just that my memory didn't serve me well and deviated to your name.

Hollie Maea,

LOL. Those posts were pretty funny. I will look back and try to find them and will pm you if I run into any luck finding them.


All,

Why do some people still say that we're not T/O and speculate the reason they haven't started finishing the sections next to the spire is because there is more jacking to be done.

There is no more jacking to come and the spire section there will be completed as per their plans and schedules.

Sky Tower didn't hack any server. His plans were photocopied, and he probably got it from someone related to the project that had them.

They were not as secretive as people were making them to be (like just a few people have seen the plans and such), you can't build/work on something without seeing in details what you are supposed to do and there are dozens of companies involved in the design, construction and material supplying which makes hundreds of professionals who have seen them or got posses of them.


... and no, i am not talking out of my behind.

I'm also sure hundreds of professionals have the plans, otherwise how can they work on it? For example I'm an interior designer and when we work on big projects like hotels we receive all the plans and sections we need, not everything. I'm trying to say, many of them might have only the parts they are working on, I don't think soo many people had the complete set of drawings.

Excellent "trick" photography there. I wonder just how big (in square meters) that flag would be if it were really attached to the top of the Burj, and how strong the "pole" and spire would have to be to resist the wind load that it would generate?
