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?

Intel Beignet Is Working Out Surprisingly Well For OpenCL On Linux

Beignet is the project out of Intel's Open-Source Technology Center for exposing GPGPU/compute capabilities out of Ivy Bridge hardware and newer when using a fully open-source Linux stack. While Beignet differs greatly from Gallium3D's Clover state tracker, this Intel-specific open-source OpenCL implementation is working out quite well for Ubuntu Linux. While I've been writing about Intel's Beignet project since early 2013, it's probably been about a year now since I tried out the code, which is developed by Intel's OTC graphics team in China. This weekend I tried out Beignet v0.9.2 as trying out the newest Intel OpenCL code has been on my TODO list for a while and it's been working out rather well in my initial tests. Read more
