Mystery deepens around missing Oakland woman

Filed under
Reiser

Nine days have passed since Nina `Nenasha" Reiser was last seen dropping off her son and daughter at their father's Montclair home, and the mystery surrounding her disappearance deepened Tuesday.

Amidst revelations of a tumultuous divorce, police said they found the 31-year-old mother's missing 2001 Honda mini-van in another part of Montclair near Highway 13 last week.

In addition, police had her children, ages 5 and 6, removed from the custody of their father, Hans Reiser, last Friday and placed with county Child Protective Services.

A search of the van and the surrounding area, including hunts by specially-trained tracking dogs, have failed to produce any tangible leads, police said.

Nina Reiser was supposed to have picked up her children on Sept. 4 but did not do so, and a friend alerted the authorities.

Reiser was born and raised in Russia, where she practiced as a gynecologist, friends said. She moved to the United States in 2000, where she and her husband started a technology company.

re: tidbits

Too bad it's Reisers wife, otherwise you could just run autorecovery and fsck would probably find her.

**sorry, was just reading fark.com and the auto-smartass response flag hasn't been reset yet.

Bay Area news reports state that "Police have still not been able to contact Hans Reiser since Sept. 5 to speak with him about his wife's disappearance. Police believe he is the last person to have seen his wife before she was reported missing on Sept. 4."

Hopefully they find her...

I was reading an article about this over at SFGate the other day, and actually snickered at the last name... I had no idea it was actually related to the filesystem. I didn't know it was named after anyone...

Hopefully they find her though... must be stressful on the family .

re: Hopefully they find her...

Yeah, I hope they do as well. When I first read of it, I investigated to be sure in my mind that it was indeed the Hans Reiser of reiserfs before posting about it. Then of course other linux sites picked up on it, dug deeper, and confirmed it as well.

I can't print in public what I think happened to her, but you can probably guess. I can say I fear she may never be found, at least alive. It's just so wicked that something like this could happen in our little Linux community.

Leftovers: Ubuntu

  • Ubuntu Phone, Sep 2016 - Vorsprung durch Touch
    The Ubuntu Phone is getting better, and with every new iteration of the OTA, my little BQ Aquaris E4.5 is gaining more speed and functionality. Like in the air force, with an avionics upgrade, which transforms ancient wings into a powerful and modern bird of prey. Only the pace of advancement is lagging behind the market. See what Android and iOS can do, even Windows Phone, and you realize how late and insufficiently meaningful the Ubuntu Phone really is. This has to change, massively. This latest round does bring some fine goods to the table - more speed and stability, better icons, more overall visual polish, incremental improvements in the applications and the scopes. But that's not enough to win the heart of the average user. A more radical, app-centric effort is required. More focus on delivering the mobile experience, be it as it may. Ubuntu cannot revolutionalize that which is already considered the past. It can only join the club and enjoy the benefits of a well-established reality. And that is a kickass app stack that makes the touch device worth using in the first place. Still, it's not all gloomy. E4.5 is a better product now than it was a year ago, fact. Ubuntu Phone is a better operating system than it was even this spring, fact. So maybe one day we will see Ubuntu become an important if not dominant player in the phone and tablet space. It sure is heading in the right direction, my only fear is the availability of resources to pull off this massive rehaul that is needed to make it stand up to the old and proven giants. And that's it really. If you're keen on Linux (not Android) making it in the mobile world, do not forget to check my Ubuntu tablet review! Especially the convergence piece. On that merry note, you do remember that I'm running a wicked contest this year, too? He/she who reads my books might get a chance to win an M10 tablet. Indeed. Off you go, dear readers. Whereas I will now run the same set of tests we did here on the Aquaris tablet, and see how it likes the OTA-12 upgrade. The end.

  • Another Setback for 3D Printed Gun Advocate Cody Wilson as Court of Appeals Rules That National Security Concerns Outweigh Free Speech
    It’s been a long, drawn-out battle, beginning in 2013 when Cody Wilson, founder of Defense Distributed, published the open source files for his 3D printed handgun, the Liberator, online. The State Department ordered that he take the files down, and Wilson complied, but not before thousands had downloaded them and spread them elsewhere on the Internet. In 2015, with the help of gun rights organization The Second Amendment Foundation, Wilson filed a federal lawsuit claiming that the State Department had violated not only his Second Amendment but his First Amendment rights. By suppressing his right to share information online, Wilson argued, the State Department was violating his right to free speech.

  • Oracle tries playing nice with Java EE rebels
    With Oracle now trying to get back on track with advancing enterprise Java, the company is seeking rapprochement with factions that had sought to advance the platform on their own. The two groups involved are mostly amenable to patching up the relationship. Oracle's Anil Gaur, group vice president of engineering, said this week he had already been in touch with some of the concerned parties. The two factions include Java EE Guardians, led by former Oracle Java EE evangelist Reza Rahman, and Microprofile.io, which has included participation from Red Hat and IBM.
