Wow those full fountain testing videos are grand! Sweet, thanks for sharing.

Desert Diver - Nice shots as well from so far off without noise. Tripod I'm guessing? You're going to have to show me all the "cool" spots to photograph this beast once I made it there!

Hi Cranium.

I surely would if I could - I only have a flat panel scanner ...

Just received confirmation that it shipped - should be here ~ 17th.
Near 100 bucks with the exchange but should be a good read.

The cladding just keeps going on. I would make a bet that by the end of this year, there will be at least one base jumper who sneaks in to the top floor and jumps off.
