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.

    Most people consider a college education the key to future success, but for many students, the cost is insurmountable. The growing open educational resource (OER) movement is attempting to address this problem by providing a high-quality, low-cost alternative to traditional textbooks, while at the same time empowering students and educators in innovative ways. One of the leaders in this movement is Robin DeRosa, a professor at Plymouth State University in New Hampshire. I have been enthusiastically following her posts on Twitter and invited her to share her passion for open education with our readers. I am delighted to share our discussion with you.

Linux 4.10 To Linux 4.15 Kernel Benchmarks

The ThinkPad X1 Carbon has been enjoying its time on Linux 4.15. In addition to the recent boot time tests and kernel power comparison, here are some raw performance benchmarks looking at the speed from Linux 4.10 through Linux 4.15 Git. With this Broadwell-era Core i7 5600U laptop with 8GB RAM, HD Graphics, and 128GB SATA 3.0 SSD with Ubuntu 17.10 x86_64, the Linux 4.10 through 4.15 Git mainline kernels were benchmarked. Each one was tested "out of the box" and the kernel builds were obtained from the Ubuntu Mainline Kernel archive. Read more
