Yes, being typically closed minded individuals, they said "No". However, that got me off my ass to do some other side projects for which I have gotten a mobile office spot at Pipeline Philly. So, we should be able to use that space, which is much nicer, and actually has coffee at least twice a month.
Downside is I have to let people in the building. But, little give and little take. Has plenty of good areas, either table or open lounge space ideal for lean coffee discussions.
FYI, my home direct email is email@example.com. Probably easier to reach me there directly.
