Yep, on day one of the post.    With a friend, I found a spring-loaded
switch box at Granger's that accepts standard keyways.  I bought one,
and will pin it to match the NB key for the open house week during
SxSW.   Should be fun!

I don't have one in front of me to check right now, so I'm going from memory.  Eric and I have a metric fuckton of these, and could likely just key one to the NoiseKey... after a bit of drilling and other hackery to install a switch, that is. =P
