[Noisebridge-discuss] Proposal to open Noisebridge at sunrise

In this case, I would like to improve the interface for adding fulltimeusers. Am I correct that currently one must edit a text file on Earl's raspPie to assign a key fulltimeuser permissions?

Also,  is there somewhere between sunrise and 11:00 that y'all are comfortable with? Sunrise+2hr? I feel most anon users are good users and key expiry will filter a majority of the bad users.
