Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I frequently post in the topic.
Sometimes it is nice to be able to attach sourcecode of components that solve a particular issue.
Stack Overflow does not allow attachments outright for good reasons, you need to put a link to a storage site somewhere.

As we all know links break and storage expires.

Which storage site would you recommend to store a file attachment, so that my "this component is downloadable here" answer does not become useless because the link dies over time?

If you have so much sourcecode that it can not fit into the post, you or the OP is doing something wrong.

Anyway, Gist from GitHub is a good idea in my opinion. GitHub is not going away in the next time (availability of the code) and has some nice features in there.
