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.)

Ubuntu 16.04 Review: What’s New for Desktop Users

There were many technologies or features that Canonical thought were ambitious -- HUD, experimenting with menus, online dash search, Ubuntu Software Center, etc. -- but they were abandoned. So, if I were to use Ubuntu on my desktop, I would still choose LTS. Read more

Workflow and efficiency geek talks Drush and Drupal

I started using Drupal because I needed an open source content management system (CMS) to use in several community projects. One of the projects I was involved with was just getting started and had narrowed its CMS selection down to either Drupal or Joomla. At the time I was using a different framework, but I had considered Drupal in the past and knew that I liked it a lot better than Joomla. I convinced them to go with the new Drupal 6 release and converted all of my other projects for consistency. I started working with Drush because I wanted a unified mechanism to work with local and remote sites. My first major contribution to Drush was site aliases and sql-sync in Drush 3. Read more
