Nina Reiser's Best Friend Was Panicking: 'I Did Not Know Where Nina Was'

Filed under
Reiser

Nina Reiser's best friend took the witness stand here Wednesday at Hans Reiser's murder trial, reliving for jurors her emotional disarray following her friend's disappearance last year. "I was panicking. I did not know where Nina was."

All the while, Hans Reiser, the developer of once popular Linux file systems, rested his elbow on the defense table and propped his head with his chin on palm, sometimes gazing at the witness who described his wife's final days before she went missing. Like a dozen witnesses before, Ellen Doren testified it was impossible Nina Reiser would abandon her children as Hans Reiser claims.

"Would she have been the kind of mother that would just vanish and abandon her children?" prosecutor Paul Hora asked in the midst of the trial's fifth week here. Her answer was nearly identical to the many others. "Absolutely not."

Doren recollected a telephone conversation with Hans Reiser's wife the day she vanished, Sept. 3, 2006. She described Nina and Hans fighting over who would have custody of their two young children that Labor Day weekend of Sept. 3, 2006. She also said she had plans to meet Nina Reiser for dinner later that evening.

"Was that the last time you ever talked to her?" prosecutor Paul Hora asked. "Did you ever talk to her again."

The witness shook her head no.

Sad News! ;-)

So, XP is dead, “7” is dying, “8” is a zombie, and “10” is vapourware with nowhere to call home. M$ continues layoffs. POOF! It all falls down. In the meantime Google and the OEMs will crank out many millions of ChromeBooks. Canonical, Linpus, RedHat, Suse… and the OEMs will crank out many millions of GNU/Linux PCs. Several OEMs will crank out many millions of GNU/Linux thin clients. Android/Linux will reverberate with another billion or so units of small cheap computers(tablets, smartphones). This looks like good news to me. Read more

Android creator Andy Rubin is leaving Google

The move is, perhaps, not a total surprise. Last March, Rubin left the Android group and was replaced by Sundar Pichai. His latest project, as detailed in a lengthy New York Times report in December, was creating robots for a project outside of the company's Google X lab, something that dovetailed with Google's shopping spree of robotics companies. In 2012, there were also rumors abound that Rubin planned to leave for a stealth-mode startup called CloudCar, though they were vehemently denied. Read more

NVIDIA's Linux Driver On Ubuntu 14.10 Can Deliver Better OpenGL Performance Than Windows 8.1

The same Intel Core i7 4770K system used for yesterday's Windows vs. Linux graphics benchmarks were used when benchmarking the GeForce GTX 780 Ti, 970, and 980 graphics cards. Windows 8.1 Pro x64 had all available system updates at the time and was running the NVIDIA 344.48 WHQL binary driver that was their latest release at the time of testing. When running Ubuntu 14.10 x86_64 on the system with its Linux 3.16 kernel, the NVIDIA 343.22 driver was used. The 343.22 driver was the latest publicly available proprietary Linux driver at the time of testing and their first to support the GTX 970/980 under Linux. All of the same hardware was used under each operating system and each OS was with its software default settings as were the driver settings. Read more
