How can I make StackOverflow useful again?

StackOverflow used to be my favorite resource for coding questions, but in the last few months it's usefulness has dramatically decreased, and I'm wondering if its just me or are others having the same issue. More importantly are there any tips or hints that will help restore its usefulness as a tool?

I'm leaving this a little vague because I'm mainly interested in whether others have seen a decline in SO usefulness, and if so have they developed any techniques for improving the signal to noise ratio when using SO. Is it even possible that a better-than SO site is lurking out there?
Bonus question: Are there any SO Meta success stories of late? Where a particular SO Meta question seemed to push the SO site more towards usefulness that might give me clues or insight in getting the most of of SO.
