Hans Reiser Murder Trial Delayed 2 Days

Filed under
Reiser

The Hans Reiser murder trial was delayed for two days Monday. Prosecutor Paul Hora is unable to attend the proceedings here in Alameda County Superior Court until Wednesday. His wife had a baby boy Saturday.

The trial of the Linux programmer, who is accused of killing his estranged wife Nina Reiser, began Nov. 6. There have been about 50 witnesses. Hora was expected to rest his case this week, and now that appears unlikely.

The defendant, 44, the operator of Namesys, might take the stand when his attorneys put a defense.

Poor Hans

Not to beat a dead horse :dead:

But this is hardly a fine example of "Innocent UNTIL proven guilty".

It's all well and nice that the Prosecutor can take time off for a personal matter, but meanwhile Reiser is locked in Jail with no freedom, and has yet to be proven guilty of anything but having once been married to the missing person.

If the overzealous DA can't convince the jury with a preponderance of evidence that Reiser is guilty of murder (even though there is no proof the person is dead, let alone murdered, let alone murdered by Reiser), I hope Reiser files a HUGE lawsuit against the clowns that started this circus.

KDE: Simple by Default, Powerful When Needed

KDE (back when it was still the name of the desktop environment) and our applications historically stood for powerful features and great flexibility and customizeability. This is what our users love about our software, this is why they choose Plasma and KDE software instead of one of the other Free desktop offerings. And it is also something they would fight tooth and nail for if we wanted to take it away (as many a KDE maintainer who dared to remove a feature he thought was unnecessary can tell). Read more

BitTorrent Bleep alpha released for Android

As an alpha it still has some issues “As with any Alpha, there are some known issues and bugs to work out. Android users will need to set the app to “Wi-Fi Only” unless you have an unlimited data plan; this is only for the time being while we iron out and issue related to battery and data-plan. And while you can move a username from desktop to mobile, Bleep does not yet support moving an existing account from Android to the desktop. And while you can receive messages on multiple devices; messages sent will not be seen across all devices. As with our previous release, communications happen only when all parties are online – you cannot send offline photos or group chats asynchronously.” Read more
