The key is not mine to duplicate. To get the key I went to Bracha Cohen, in
charge of teaching in the faculty, and signed a consent form, in which I
promise to uphold CS faculty regulations. Since I am not a TA in the
faculty, she did me a favor by letting me have the key at all. Duplicating
the key would be a breach of trust.

I remind you all that before that, we did not have a key at all for years,
since both Orr and Alon Altman graduated.
