About piping bits i think are not only in mechanical floors, see examble:

In low floors is complete.
Also those piping bits should be in green marked areas (marked by me)

btw those piping bits photos from previous pages, are from the first green marked area...

It really helps to grasp just how tall it is, even from such great distances.
I can imagine it must get quite dusty at times, so it would probably be quite rare to see a photograph from even further away.

Thanks for your time and effort.
My pleasure Here another one from tonight while walking through our neighborhood with the tripod. Not farther away than my posts from yesterday, but yet again from 18km distance. On this pic you can grasp the distance a little better I think, since you can compare BD with the villas in the foreground.

HI, first post here, love the tower, and I especially love the updates, it's like actually being there watching it be built... and I loved the argument with chad and the other members as well! One of the better arguments i've read in a while, all because of a fountain! lol

I've been coming here for a little over a year, never had the urge to post, until I was reading those comments about the "fountain", very funny and interesting read if you ask me, lol!

But, I figured I would post a reply about the whole Godwin law.. I was curious enough to look it up and find out what it was, and I must say that it is one the dumbest things I have ever read, after giving it some thought.

What, did this guy not expect one of the most evil villians of modern human civilization not to be brought up in a conversation? The law clearly states: ""As a Usenet discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches one." Well duh, the probability goes up for Martin Luther King Jr also, don't yah think? And not to mention when another user uses the word "dictate" torwards another member, that % immediately goes up, since... Hitler was a dictator, or maybe they should just throw out the whole Godwins law in that instance, because if I called someone a president, don't you think they would say "no... I'm not President Oboma", or use another president in it's place as an example?

I guess that's wikipedia for yah!

OK, hopefully someone will read this after all that rambling, but... does anyone know if there is going to be any type of special televised events for the opening of this building? If not televised, possibly on the internet? I know Dubai(somewhat) and I know they like to do some crazy firework displays and stuff like that, so I figured they would... but I wasn't sure.
