I like this idea a lot.  Much better than the closing after a certain time
thing.  I believe this will be a precursor to the hot tub resets we may
have in the future.  Mind you, I am not a member and I LOVE going to
Noisebridge so this might just force me to become a member.  Next time I am
there, I am putting my name in the binder (finally).
