    Ignorance of Scripture is ignorance of Christ. - St. Jerome, who was commissioned by Pope Damasus I to revise the Latin text of the Bible. The result was 30 years of work known as the Vulgate translation that is still in use today. Feast day: September 30.

      Whoah! First time this happened with Win 10 updates*: did not complete, so held my breath while rollback spinner kept spinning. Fortunately, back to the old state. FYI: I'm on Microsoft Insider Slow Track. * https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3194496

                    @33mhz - notice a diff between reported following count and what I see - open same user profile in non-authenticated mode - compare what I see logged and what I see non-authenticated - find and open suspected blocker profile to confirm I can't Logical.

                      Just encountered HTTP server which has "19dec2003" in the version number. Yea, internet is full of weird stuff.

                        @clarkgoble First I've seen this happen on ADN; like many (what imo consider) spam accounts I blocked this one too. @blumenkraft Strangely, some (new to ADN) spam accounts begin their life here by preemptively blocking me, so word gets round I guess.

                          @gtwilson watching Stroustrup in CPPCon 2016 video, impressed and amazed with that guy's stamina and openness to change. In fact ISO voting is what's holding back progress he wanted put in; now there's fragmentation of compiler adoption of C++17 features.

                            1:04 Concepts never made it into C++17 but it is available as a TS (tech spec) and implemented in GCC 6.1.

                                    Nevermind, by Nirvana, which came out 25 years ago today is the appropriate response to today's 2016 Turner Prize exhibit - a giant bronze sculpture bum. No. Really.

                                      I've basically given up on posting to SO. Have experienced a large number of the points raised in this, as well as others. I've also seen the quality of responses drop off drastically. Seems like those with the knowledge are moving off too. <=> [getpocket.com]

                                        Good idea as it will prevent fragmentation and extend the platform as a better competitor to Java. Besides who knows many languages now only available on JVM will move over: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/dotnet/2016/09/26/introducing-net-standard/
