I think split into 2 but not more.
Agreed, oblivious not 40 part TR's. but ones that don't take more than around 5-8 minutes to read.

I don't think people read TRs for sound bites. They come for a good long read.

Also, JJ think it's way too long and should be in more parts. I cringe at 40 part TRs though.
What do you guys think?
Wow that's long.... you don't have to post the whole thing visible
 you could simply break it with your read more link. (from the initial post.)

5-8min is a pretty long read. 10-15min is a length I think you'll lose 50%+ of DDMS readers. I'm sure there 10% (many of whom are on DDf that'd be happy with a 30min read, but that's not what should be on DDMS IMO.
but for now ....

Is it dated for 2015 on purpose, so it shouldn't be at the top?
