[dms-discuss] electronic keys are down, for now

Hi all,

For the moment, the electronic door locking mechanism is down.  Physical keys only for now until it is fixed.

Basically after a recent upgrade to the OS on the door control computer, it looks like a bug was tripped in my code that would cause the process to die without cleaning up after itself, thus if this occurred while the door was being unlocked, it would continuously try to unlock it.

This happened at least once yesterday, and now it happened again while Tim was there, and he sent me a message that he has deactivated the computer until the issue can be resolved.

It sounds like the continuous unlock cycle caused some damage to the physical mechanism as well, though I'll let Tim speak to that.

I'm very sorry that my code caused this problem.
