This is a tiny room in a two-star hotel, hardly larger than my night ferry cabin on the way over. It has SIX power outlets. Two even with a USB socket, which unfortunately I didn't notice until now (leaving in 40 minutes and my phone is fully charged). Why can't big hotels be like this, too?

@kot That would be an excellent idea if it wasn't too late to go back to sleep now. I'm not doing that for half an hour.

This bed has an almost imperceptible incline: wall side is ever so slightly higher. Not enough to be dangerous but it makes lying in it feel like work. So now I'm wide awake at 3:15 am (alarm goes at 6). It's a pity because otherwise this is a very nice little room.

This Vietnamese restaurant is full of little old local ladies, groups of teenage Asian girls, student couples, and us. It's on the near-the-centre edge of what looks like Dublin's Chinatown. The food is cheap, plentiful and delicious. Ordering tea gets you a huge pot of tea.

I'm now so tired that I'm losing my ability to make sense of spoken language. Reading and writing is still okay.

Perhaps I shouldn't have drunk a pint of cider really quickly in order to catch the last tram. (I was going to say it was only 2 pints total, one of beer and one of cider, but I forgot Taylor's killer mead)

@offby1 It was @edebill 's panel where they asked, at mine they were just less than competent in using them and I was too far at the back to speak up.

Please, people, if you're not going to talk about extraordinary powers, don't put that in the title of the panel. (The description is correct, and the panel is really good, but they might have called it something more specific)

One of the people on this panel has a very cute service dog.

It's disconcerting that there's not a single public clock in this building. Most people have to get out their phone if they need to know the time.

@edebill They didn't even ask that, and I think the two with clear voices used them correctly!
