Your Aldi does not sound like mine, opening new lanes to cope with customers!!!
Most Aldi stores have 5 lanes, they make sure one is open all the time.
When the cashier sees that their line is full and one or more waiting out the back  of the line, they press a button and this voice says.
"We are opening register 5, please unload you groceries at register 5".
They must have a roster of who out on the floor stops stacking and opens "register 5" because within 30seconds the register is working.
It is very efficient and works very well.
Aldi's register lanes are about 6m long, so two or three or four people can unload at once, the table is a conveyor belt.

The other supermarket chains are hopeless when it comes to this sort of logistics.
They wait until there are 5 or 6 people waiting out in the line, obstructing everybody else who is trying to shop.
Then who ever is in charge on the floor, tries to find an employee to and open a register, "1" register, instead of 2 or 3 to cater for the back log.
Their lanes have enough length for one customer at  time with a good load of groceries.

Supermarkets have security cameras, why don't they use them to monitor the register backlog and organise register logistics. (Then that would be too easy!!!)

Does this mean that McDonald's McCafe AND Aldi register logistics are both Australian ideas!!!!!!!  8) :D :D :D 8)

I generally use the self scan checkouts these days. I don't like the feeling that I am being rushed through the ones with a checkout operative. They scan faster than I can pack leaving me with a pile of stuff to put in bags then pay while they and the rest of the queue wait for me to finish. At a self checkout* I can go at my own speed.

*Is 'self checkout' some kind of automated medical check system?

If I have a handful of goods I'll use the "self checkout"  :) .
But a full shop I use the cashier, and I put the goods in my "trolley bags".
I can keep up with them cos I unpack on the belt in a specific order. (No I'm not ADDDDDddddd...... :o )

Your sketch can sense ongoing process events in time.
Your sketch can make events to control it over time.

I haven't heard any reporting of them since the fires started, so the the fires may have lowered their population.
OR
The lack of trees to drop out of might be the problem.

I heard Florida now has drop iguanas.
Please don't PM technical questions - post them on the forum, then everyone benefits/suffers equally

South Florida, and really big pythons and an invasive frog species but worse, LOTS OF over 90 year old drivers.

The roaches there are big enough for collars and leashes.
