Every so often, the hardware at Null Space Labs demands a sacrifice. The Ancient Ones of Bit and Baud must be appeased. In short: you might get stuck in the elevator. Here's what happened on May 17:
<gallery widths=“150px” heights=“150px” perrow=“4”> File:How_many.JPG| How many hackers does it take to rescue one skinny girl from the Derp-Eating Elevator? File:All_hackers.JPG| Clearly, the answer is “all the hackers”. File:Wood.JPG| We tried to wedge the elevator open using 2x4s, with limited success. File:M_crowbar.JPG| As usual: the crowbar made an appearance. File:IMG 1700.JPG| We got a little overexcited about the wood. File:Moar_crowbar.JPG| Needed moar crowbar. File:Scissor jack.JPG| Scissor jack FTW. File:Moar_jack.JPG| The scissor jack was actually quite effective. File:Jackin wood.JPG| We combine wood and jacks. We jack the wood. You can do the math. File:Contact.JPG| We have contact with the trapped elevator victim. File:Open.JPG| Opening the sacrificial chamber. File:Rescue.JPG| We're not saving the world – but we might save you from the elevator. File:Saved.JPG| At last, our hapless thrall is freed from the horrible prison known as our derpy elevator. File:Omg awful.JPG| “Omg that was the worst thing ever, I hate elevators. Thank you, Null Space Labs!” File:Effing finally.JPG| M's all “hell yeah we got that shit open! hackerspace!!” File:Shut down.JPG| Closing the elevator. Nothing of interest happened here. Just walk away. File:Charlie rage.JPG| Charlie pretty much sums up our feelings about this incident.
