Hans Reiser Murder Trial Refocusing on Nina Reiser

Filed under
Reiser

After weeks of forensic evidence and other testimony, the softer side of the Hans Reiser murder trial re-emerged here Wednesday when the 3-month-old case refocused on the Linux programmer's wife, who vanished Sept. 3, 2006.

After weeks of forensic evidence and other testimony, a manager for the San Francisco Public Health Department testified she offered Nina Reiser a job working with Russian immigrants two days before she went missing. She was supposed to begin her stint Sept. 21, 2006, but she never started.

"Did she ever show up on the 21st to start her new job?" prosecutor Paul Hora asked Patricia Ann Erwin, the Public Health Department manager.

"No."

Erwin also said Nina Reiser never showed to fill out paperwork or get her fingerprints taken.

Leftovers: KDE (Akonadi, KWin)

  • Akonadi for e-mail needs to die
    So, I'm officially giving up on kmail2 (i.e., the Akonadi-based version of kmail) on the last one of my PCs now. I have tried hard and put in a lot of effort to get it working, but it costs me a significant amount of time and effort just to be able to receive and read e-mail - meaning hanging IMAP resources every few minutes, the feared "Multiple merge candidates" bug popping up again and again, and other surprise events. That is plainly not acceptable in the workplace, where I need to rely on e-mail as means of communication. By leaving kmail2 I seem to be following many many other people... Even dedicated KDE enthusiasts that I know have by now migrated to Trojita or Thunderbird.
  • Virtual keyboard support in KWin/Wayland 5.7
    Over the last weeks I worked on improved input device support in KWin/Wayland and support for virtual keyboard. KWin 5.7 will integrate the new QtVirtualKeyboard module which is now available under GPLv3. For us this means that we have access to a high quality QML based keyboard. For Qt it means that the virtual keyboard is exposed to more users and thanks to the open source nature it means that we can upstream fixes.
  • Virtual Keyboard Support For KWin / KDE Wayland 5.7
    The latest KWin/Wayland hacking project by Martin Gräßlin is adding virtual keyboard support to KWin for the upcoming KDE Plasma 5.7 release. This virtual keyboard support is powered by the QtVirtualKeyboard module and provides a high-quality, QML-based keyboard that will work on KWin/Wayland when no hardware keyboard is available. Implementing this virtual keyboard support with Wayland compatibility was actually quite a feat, but has now become a reality thanks to the work by Martin.
