Was at the end of my tether by 10am. Think something popped in my neck later on.

Were you stopped many times?

Massive traffic jam leaving Dublin. 5km stretch on N7 before Nass with most amount of orange traffic cones I’ve ever seen.
3 lanes
Down to 2 lanes
Down to 1 lane.
Just to be waved on when we reach the actual checkpoint. Added on about 20mins to journey.
Had a look at same checkpoint tailback across the road on the return journey. Easily 10km

Maybe they're just stopping cars filled with 5 people or some shit?
they were only pulling cars. commercials just waved on usually.

EDIT they could have signposted what each of the three lanes could thread into to organise them; like one for cars one for commercial/vans one for big haulage. would have sped things up

If I scroll down the page a bit and it takes multiple seconds for it to render over the vpn I lose interest and come here or some other website and forget what I was doing.

Haha that's true for me for almost anything work related. If there's gonna be a delay of more than 20s in ANYTHING I'm best off getting up out of the chair and cleaning the toilet or something, otherwise I'll find myself arguing on hacker news or something an hour later

I put the recycling into the compost bin by accident the other day. It wouldn’t have been that bad only the compost had just been emptied so it was all at the bottom covered in compost juice. I had to take a shower after I had fished it all out as I needed to essentially crawl into the bin to reach.
