Boo, hiss. If we're going to have articles at LWN, let's make them entirely readable at LWN please.

> Part two will be featured on next week's development page.

If we're splitting the article over multiple parts, let's have it all at one site instead of split over multiple sites please.

Split articles not good

I second this comment, there are now two different threads of comments for this article, not a good thing.

The 'here' link links to another LWN page. It's not 'off-site'.

Indeed, I was wrong. Thanks.

I still think it's a bit strange and confusing to give a big run-up to an article, then say "go here for the rest".

Less confusing would be the usual "Short summary of what is in this article, no more than a paragraph. Follow the Full Story link for more."

Yes, I also "vote" for a small intro and entire article linked to, instead half an article on the main page, and the entire on a separate page (with two different streams of comments).

Still, hard to read when one is 'off-line'.
