Geek Murder?

A fascinating article about the events leading up to and current state of play of the investigation of Hans Reiser's ex-wife, Nina Reiser. While researched by a journalist commissioned by the defence, the article is anything but biased, and is written in an engaging and, to be frank, fascinating fashion (excerpts from the Reiser4 code aside).

(no subject)

I'm thinking I should cut back on the gym, and use the time in the next few weeks for:


  • Preparing to move

  • Celebrating with friends/colleagues

  • Researching OpenGL (potentially a useful headstart in my new job)

  • Catching up on current techniques in game AI (as above)



Trouble is, I feel a bit like I'm making excuses - like I should find the extra time from my truly free time - cut out the cartoons, or reading, and keep up my exercise routine. On the other hand, that would turn me into a giant stress bomb, potentially triggering illnesses.

What to do? In fact, let's add a poll, purely because I paid for an account, and I can:

Poll #1013872 Plans of action
