[Noisebridge-discuss] elevator broken still?

I contacted Brian today - Otis is fixing it and he is trying to get someone
from their office on the phone.

The elevator was moved in maintenance mode, so I think they now only have
the broken gate as a blocking issue.

I mentioned to Brian that we can train someone to operate the elevator with
the current damaged gate in maintenance mode. I think it's a longshot but
maybe we'll get lucky.
