Hans Reiser in the Sierra Nevada Mountains 21 Days After Wife Vanished

Filed under
Reiser

Intrigue set in here Tuesday during the Hans Reiser murder trial.

Reiser, the Linux programmer accused of killing his wife, made several "uncommon" cash withdrawals -- and three ATM transactions in the Sierras -- in the days and weeks after his wife vanish Sept. 3, 2006, a bank auditor testified.

Three transactions totaling about $1,500 in withdrawals occurred in Truckee, California, on Sept. 24, the auditor testified. Reporters and onlookers in the gallery, and presumably jurors, were wondering what Hans Reiser was doing in the Sierra Nevada mountains, just outside Lake Tahoe.

Did the operator of Namesys, who developed once-popular open-source file systems, dump a body in the expansive wilderness there? That question begs other questions, such as if the wife was discarded in the Sierras, what happened to the body during the 21 days since she vanished?

How to: Install Google Chrome web browser on Ubuntu Linux (and uninstall Firefox)

Ubuntu comes with a lot of quality software pre-installed. Unfortunately, the default web browser, Mozilla Firefox, has been on the decline -- it is slow and clunky. On Linux, Google Chrome is now the top web browser, and it is the best way to experience Adobe Flash content too (if you still need it). Installing Google Chrome on the Linux-based operating system is not totally straightforward. This is unfortunate, as the search-giant's web browser is an important part of having an overall quality experience on Ubuntu. Don't worry, however, as we will help you to both install the wonderful Google Chrome and uninstall the disappointing Mozilla Firefox. Read more
