This isn’t the best practice from a security standpoint, and would be an even bigger problem if this was a fire door, but it does qualify as Fixed-it Friday ingenuity.


Thank you to Eyal Bedrik of Entry Systems Ltd. for the photos! 

Eyal is from Israel, and I have met him a couple of times when he visited the US.  Now that I am in Mexico, I have had visits from a specwriter from the northwest, two Canadian women from the hardware industry, and an architect from Vermont (who happens to be one of my BFFs).  Not to mention Bill Elliott’s neighbors from New Hampshire who we have adopted into our family after several visits.

Last weekend, my friends were at a kids’ birthday party here in San Miguel de Allende and met a couple visiting from Texas.  Somehow the conversation turned to doors and then to iDigHardware, and my friends realized that the visitor was talking about me!  One of my friends sent me a message saying, “He even has your website pulled up on his phone!”  –>

I called and arranged to take my new Texas pals to dinner that night.  Now my friends think I have fans, and that iDigHardware must be pretty cool  😀

I keep joking that I’m going to host code retreats here in my retirement years, but until then, let me know if you’re ever in the neighborhood!
