Bicycle theft in Ireland has doubled in Ireland since the introduction of the Bike to Work scheme in 2009. Almost 4,500 bicycle thefts were reported in Dublin in 2013, but the actual number of bike thefts is likely to be in the region of 20,000 in 2013 according to Irish household surveys and international experience[3,4]. The chances of a bike thief being caught is low, with a conviction rate of only 2% or reported thefts. Approximately 230,000 bicycles are imported into Ireland each year. “Bike theft is a low-risk, high-reward crime. If cars were being stolen at this rate there would be uproar.” Says Keith Byrne, Chairperson of the Dublin Cycling Campaign. Fear of bicycle theft may discourage bicycle use and many bicycle theft victims do not buy a replacement [7,8]. “Many people give up on cycling after their bicycle is stolen and it discourages others from taking up cycling as the word about the high risk of theft spreads. We need a co-ordinated multi-agency plan to tackle bicycle theft if we are to reach the Government target of 10% of journeys by bicycle by 2020” says Keith Byrne.Amen to that.

An excellent tip from Gil “HDRHistogram” Tene:
Good example of why I always “calibrate” latency tools with ^Z tests. If ^Z results don’t make sense, don’t use [the] tool. ^Z test math examples: If you ^Z for half the time, Max is obvious. [90th percentile] should be 80% of the ^Z stall time.
