If you're running #docker   on #Ubuntu, with devicemapper, don't upgrade to 1.7.

The underlying issues leading to pull requests #64 and #65 suggest to me that slp_switch has potential to be compiled buggy when undefined compiler behaviour changes. Specifically: The gcc manual says: "Note that the compiler can move ...

So glad to see this finally. Managing contacts on your phone is a royal pain, and the contact manager in Gmail was basically invisible.

You had me at "autonomous spaceport drone ship".
 
Just Read the Instructions now on location in the Atlantic in advance of tomorrow's launch, targeted for 4:33pm ET. Since our last landing attempt, the drone ship has been upgraded to tolerate more powerful ocean swells, however weather at the landing site is looking significantly better this time.
 
After Dragon and Falcon 9’s second stage are on their way to orbit, the first stage will execute a controlled reentry through Earth’s atmosphere, targeting touchdown on an autonomous spaceport drone ship approximately nine minutes after launch.

Highly recommended if you've had one too many coffees, or one too few.

I think I need to read this book ...
 
Ben Horowitz (in The Hard Thing About Hard Things) on the difference between a good place to work and a bad place to work:

"""
Let me break it down for you.  In good organizations, people can focus on their work and have confidence that if they get their work done, good things will happen both for their company and them personally.  It is a true pleasure to work in an organization such as this.  Every person can wake up knowing that the work they do will be efficient, effective, and make a difference for the organization and themselves.  These things make their jobs both motivating and fulfilling.

In a poor organization, on the other hand, people spend much of their time fighting organizational boundaries, infighting, and broken processes.  They are not even clear on what their jobs are, so there is no way to know if they are getting the job done or not.  In the miracle case that they work ridiculous hours and get the job done, they have no idea what it means for the company or their careers.  To make it all much worse and rub salt in the wound, when they finally work up the courage to tell management how fucked-up their situation is, management denies there is a problem, then defends the status quo, then ignores the problem.
"""

Anyone want to guess what happened here? :-)

What surprised me is that it wasn't already in the smallest cog, but the derailleur moves ahead of the chain so I guess it went into the spokes and never completed the gear change.

Also the way the cage is bent seems odd, but presumably was caused by the tension from the chain once the top jockey wheel had been sucked into the wheel.

(not my bike) 

Update: so I'm almost certain it was caught in the wheel. It happened on an open road, no sticks or badgers, and the derailleur ended twisted above and behind the hub, the rider pulled it back down before bringing it in. No broken spokes but some are scratched.

I probably have put in a couple of thousand miles on my Sora drive train including ny share of nasty hills and haven't really had any troubles. I even rode it on a 545 mile ride a few years ago.

This is pretty funny if you've seen the movie, and maybe if you haven't. I did like the movie but the plot was completely ridiculous.

Ideally I'm cycling or climbing, but I also quite enjoy hacking the Linux on Power kernel at IBM.
