CIS Building Residents and SNF Lab Members:

As a number of you are likely painfully aware, we appear to be 
experiencing some sort of failure that doesn't unlock the exit doors to 
this building when presented with a valid access card. As a result, a 
number of you tried, but failed, to gain access to the exit doors last 
night.   Looking back through database records, this seems to have begun 
on 9/1/2005 at 00:00:00 ... unfortunately, I was not aware of this 
problem until this morning but have filed an urgent problem report with 
the university office that maitains and supports this system.  Hopefully 
they will get this resolved quickly.

While we don't have direct control over this system, e-mail sent to 
either labmembers at snf or maybe cis-building at cis may alert someone who 
can contact the cardkey people at the earliest possible time to resolve 
this sort of problem.

We apologize for this inconvenience.  In general, the cardkey access 
system has been quite reliable and we will be working with the people 
responsible for the system to understand what has failed in an attempt 
to insure that we don't have this problem in the future.
