This wasn't supposed to be the case, and I'm even more upset about it knowing that
there were people who came and weren't able to get in. The building is supposed
to be unlocked from 8-12 on the weekends, and when we discovered it was still locked,
I sent someone down to prop the doors open. I'm not sure yet if that didn't happen or if
the building security people unblocked them, but I intend to find out, and we're going to
make it clear to the building management that if they doors are locked we intend to block
them open, even if that ends up setting off their alarms.
If anyone ever has problems getting in to the meeting, you can call or text me at the
number in my signature (703-957-5784) which is my google voice number, so it should
get to me whether I'm at my desk or not.
I'm very sorry that this caused you to miss the meeting, and I hope nobody else ended
missing the meeting because of this. Rest assured that we are doing everything we can
do to ensure that this never happens again.
