Also http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-22149863 - 31 died in
another explosion
in Bagdhad. Afaik there is a new Hackerspace too, thx to Bilal Ghalib.

Dunno if they're on the list yet - hope they are ok.

Explosions Sniffers wouldn't help i guess, because we could need those for
Zero Mines too.


And i am 100% with you - asking if everyone is ok is just one part of being
fixing the broken status quo is part of being a Hacker (imho)
