Wow, it's really awesome to be seeing this all come together.

FYI -- there'a Noisebridge "organization" on GitHub that we can
organize Noisebridge-related projects under. If anyone's interested, I
can add you in.

Also, somewhat related is the actual mechanism of buzzing open the
door. Right now, it's that crazy parallel port/optoisolator
contraption and my hack C daemon to trigger it.
When the time comes to run some Cat5 downstairs, could two cables get
run instead? If so, we've got a Power-over-Ethernet Arduino that I'm
trying to get hooked up to control the door. It might be nice if we
can mount that all downstairs.

Looking really sharp, all around guys!
