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.

NVIDIA vs. AMD OpenGL & Vulkan Benchmarks With Valve's Dota 2

Yesterday marked the public availability of Dota 2 with a Vulkan renderer after Valve had been showing it off for months. This is the second commercial Linux game (after The Talos Principle) to sport a Vulkan renderer and thus we were quite excited to see how this Dota 2 Vulkan DLC is performing for both NVIDIA GeForce and AMD Radeon graphics cards. Here are our initial Dota 2 benchmarks with Vulkan as well as OpenGL for reference when using the latest Linux graphics drivers on Ubuntu. Read more

Why Hyperledger wants to be the ‘Linux of blockchain’

Blockchain technology offers many different benefits to enterprise developers — but there’s no cross-industry open standard for how to develop it. That makes it difficult for vendors and CIO customers to place their bets and begin building it into their technology architecture. Hyperledger, a Linux Foundation project to produce a standard open-source blockchain, wants to solve that problem, and it just got an executive director, Brian Behlendorf, to help it on its way. He founded the Apache Software Foundation, was previously on the board of the Mozilla Foundation and the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and managed tech VC firm Mithril Capital Management. Read more
