= Documentation = The gate is opened using the intercom pad inside Noisebridge, next to the door to the stairs. The "DOOR" button, illustrated with a picture of a key, <strike>opens the gate</strike> seems to be broken - you may be able to use the computerised [http://pony.noise/gate "gate" method] instead. This switch can also be operated remotely, through an arcane and un-neccessarily convoluted system. A cable leads from the keypad through the machine shop, and up to a parallel port pair mounted on a PCB, just next to a hole in the South wall. The cable from the other side of this hole leads along the ceiling to a parallel port attached to the very top of the Wall O Tubes. This is a USB parallel port connected to [[Minotaur]]. This USB parallel port is controlled by a daemon called <tt>[https://github.com/noisebridge/gateman gateman]</tt>, which -- like all services on Minotaur -- is started automatically by [http://upstart.ubuntu.com Upstart]. <tt>gateman</tt> is called by the Noisebridge API. Minotaur also hosts the [[keycode access]] system which uses API to open the gate. Other systems including the <tt>opengate</tt> script on [[Pony]] also open the gate this way. So ... if you are inside the space AND reading this page via noisebridge's internal network, you can [http://pony.noise/gate JUST CLICK HERE] to invoke the above-referenced noisegate script (via the url http://pony.noise/gate ) and open that gate!
