[svlug] France.

This isn't Linux specific, but prayers offered for the French after the
attack on Paris.  The terrorists apparently used Sony Playstation 4 and
secure DES encryption to communicate in a way that intelligence could
not pick up.  I'm not a strong advocate of having back doors on
encryption, but how can this terrible abuse of technology be combatted?

Darkness cannot be combatted by darkness, only light can dispell
darkness.  Prayers for peace, prayers for an end to dangerous
radicalism leading to anti-religious violence.  Long live the French.
