Ken Johnson's Exposition of Thread-Local Storage on Win32

The always-worth-reading Raymond Chen happens to be talking about Thread-Local Storage on Windows this week. In his essay, he references Ken Johnson's eight-part description of how Thread-Local Storage works, under the covers, using support from compiler, linker/loader, and the operating system, a description which is so good that it's worth linking to all of Johnson's articles right now:

There is no such thing as "too much information" when it comes to topics like "how does the magic behind __declspec(thread) actually work?" Johnson's in-depth explanations do the world a tremendous favor. Read; learn; enjoy!
