    I know a lot of folks were wondering why we are doing multi-page articles now. Tomorrow is a big launch. The article is not finished but now encompasses around 5000 words and 40+ images.

    It would have been silly to do this on a single page now that I am seeing the preview.

    Big day at STH tomorrow.

    I like the multipage format. I'm usually on mobile and find it helpdull.

    I think the multi paging needs a little bit tuning*, but in general it's pretty good.

    *The post "Intel Xeon Gold 6138 Benchmarks and Review 20 Power Efficient Cores" for example has a short page 1 & 3, but page 2 is "very long" compared to the others.

    @i386 part of that is breaking it up along subheadings. Some sections are larger than others. I agree that if I were more skillful I could perfectly craft sections that were the same length. Sadly, I am not.

    The big review is the ThunderX2 piece. I think I will get the OK in the next 48 hours. Yesterday I was in SF on stage with the Cavium team, HPE, Cray, Atos, Red Hat, SUSE, Canonical, Oracle Linux, Cadence and a few others talking about ThunderX2 at the launch event. The article is ready to go, I just need the OK.
