James, the dead drop merchant,  filled the dead drop with a more
permanent solution, and the goop is almost off my hands.

So Rubin and I checked the wiring as far as we could (which was not
far), but did not look at the junction box, nor in the strange mousepad
that is currently claiming to be the buzzer switch.

The reason I know about the buzzer was that delivery guy called me
because those red fluourescent labels weren't able to be delivered, and
some people said there was a little difficulty with 5MOFfers getting in
last night.
