It didn't work, because I set name="key" on the submit input instead
of the text input. (Oops.) This has been fixed, and unscripted mode
now works. I also set window.location on Enter, so scripted mode
also works. The Noisegate for Web prototype can now be used for
unlocking the Noisebridge gate.
Privacy notes: Requests to www.metamage.com (including the noisegate
html, css, and js resources) get logged, and I have access to the
logs. Submitting an access code (using either mechanism) sends a
request to pony.noisebridge.net, not www.metamage.com, so I won't
have any record of what access codes get entered. However, requests
to both servers are insecure, so you're trusting the network in both
directions. So, don't reuse your Noisegate access code for anything
Next steps are to further refine the Web app and install it on pony,
which includes updating the CGI script to output something useful.
 You're free to copy these files to some other location -- they
have no external dependencies other than pony.noisebridge.net itself.
