              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]

                  @hybotics I'd stick to the STL if I can, however, a lot of what is in the STL now started off with Boost. My issue with Boost is it is a big download (relatively speaking of course) and it becomes one more external item to keep up-to-date, get help on, etc

                    Sudden deletion of online presence is now a thing, and if Marc can do it anyone can. So it's become socially acceptable. Don't laugh, might do it myself https://techcrunch.com/2016/09/25/marc-andreessen-suddenly-deletes-all-his-tweets-goes-on-twitter-break

                        @gtwilson @33mhz Why not start with Debian Stable (jessie) then, if happy, upgrade to Testing (stretch/sid) so you never have to upgrade again.
