Hans Reiser Denies Murdering His Wife

Filed under
Reiser

Hans Reiser was just sworn in. His attorney, William DuBois, is lobbing questions to him. The defendant says he met his wife in a café in 1998 in Russia.

From there, testimony is quickly turning to the fateful day Nina Reiser disappeared. "Directing your attention to the third of September, 2006. Did you have the occasion to see Nina Reiser on that day?" DuBois asks.

"Yes I did," Reiser answers. "She arrived at the house with my kids, the both of them and they came into my house."

"She arrived at about 2:20," Reiser adds.

"After they all got into the house, what happened then?," DuBois asks.

Reiser replies that they made a lunch of spaghetti and macaroni-and-cheese for the kids, then the Reiser's two young children went downstairs to play videogames.

A woman bailiff is sitting next to Reiser on the stand. The 44-year-old defendant is wearing the same dark coat he has worn since since the trial began on November 6. He is not wearing a tie.

Jurors are taking notes and ping-ponging their heads back and forth between Reiser and DuBois. The gallery is packed, filled mostly with reporters and trial gawkers.

Reiser is now reviewing pictures of the inside of his Oakland hills residence, the house of which the authorities say his 31-year-old wife never left alive.

FreeBSD News: 64-bit Inodes and KDE

  • FreeBSD Lands Support For 64-bit Inodes (ino64 Project)
    While Linux and other operating systems (including DragonFlyBSD) have supported 64-bit inodes for data structures on file-systems, FreeBSD has been limited to 32-bit. But thanks to the work of many on the ino64 project, FreeBSD now has support for 64-bit inodes while retaining backwards compatibility.
  • KDE FreeBSD CI (2)
    The KDE Continuous Integration system builds KDE software from scratch, straight from the git repositories, and usually from master (or whatever is considered the development branch). It’s been building for Linux for a long time, and has recently been expanded with FreeBSD servers as well. KDE sysadmin has been kind enough to provide two more VMs (with some more compiling “oomph”) so that we can keep up better, and the CI has just been expanded with all of the Plasma products. That means we’re now building KDE Frameworks, and the Plasma desktop.

Void Linux - the Strangely Overlooked Distribution

Ahh, Void Linux. You may or may not have heard of it. If you have, more than likely it was by word of mouth, so to speak, from internet comments on a forum, YouTube video or in passing on Reddit. But this little distro rarely gets any press or recognition otherwise. Perhaps it's time that changes, as Void Linux is an interesting distro in its own right and a good alternative to something like Arch Linux. It also has a no-systemd approach. Read more
