Hans Reiser Explaining 'Construction Project' and Nina's Blood

Filed under
Reiser

Hans Reiser took the witness stand for the eighth day at his murder trial here Monday and offered innocent explanations over why his wife's blood was discovered at his house, the last place where she was seen alive.

He offered two explanations why the authorities found trace amounts of Nina Reiser's blood on a pillar near the entryway in that Oakland hills house. One reason could have been that she cut her hand while cooking that summer -- despite her not living at the house, he said. She also unexpectedly popped a blood vessel in her nose, he testified.

And moments before the lunch break, the Linux programmer who developed the ReiserFS filesystem, said he threw away the carpet in the hatchback area of his tiny two-seater because he was in the midst of a "construction project" and was converting it into a bed. (He had already testified he had thrown away the passenger seat of the tiny Honda CRX, a 1988 two-seater so he could sleep in the vehicle, and he had also testified earlier he tried to hide the car from the police.)

How I used a Raspberry Pi to connect with my grandkids

I finally settled on the CanaKit Raspberry Pi 3 Complete Starter Kit (32 GB edition) which has everything needed to get started except for the display and a keyboard and mouse. It includes the Pi, case, power supply, HDMI video cable, and even heat sinks for the chips. I looked at several keyboard and mouse options, even a really cool foldable keyboard. I ultimately chose an iPazzPort wireless combination keyboard and touchpad that is small and perfect for kids. It is designed for things like the Raspberry Pi, Android devices, and the Google smart TV. It has a rechargeable battery and a USB cable for that purpose. It is also less expensive than separate keyboard and mouse combinations. Read more

Ubuntu bq Aquaris M10 Review Part 2: Software

In part one of our rather lengthy review, we took a look at the bq Aquaris M10 Ubuntu tablet's hardware. Suffice it to say, it perfectly played the role of a mid-range tablet. While the device had a few ups, like its lightweight design, bright display, and substantial battery, it would have been easily passed for a mediocre slab if not for the software running on it. In this round, we take a deeper look into what makes this tablet truly one of a kind, and almost literally too. This time, we take a dive into the alien world of Ubuntu Touch. Read more
