yeah- as i said in my post-

i think that things are always in balance- where when you are strong in one area you are weak in another-
i really hope he's got nothing to do with it, but it wouldn't surprise me if he did...

Bah, he could just roll back the changes and she'd be as good as new.

+1 for a journaling filesystem!

He wrote ReiserFS, probably the second most popular Linux filesystem.

Way more than you wanted to know about his personal business:

"Reiser said Sturgeon "worked with my wife Nina Reiser and eventually drugged her with ecstasy and seduced her."

Reiser alleged, "He then engaged in Bondage, Domination, Sadism and Masochism techniques and continued to redrug her repeatedly over time."

He said Sturgeon engaged in those techniques "in an effort to show that he was a better man than I and to convince my wife Nina to conspire with him to steal the Namesys Inc. company assets." "

Random meaningless fact: her nickname means "not ours" in Russian.

Heh, search your work email for the thread between you, Matt, and me when he came to talk in February. I like your summary of the talk but don't want to quote it without asking you first.

"Turns out that (as I sorta knew in my heart) Reiser is a nut. His talk was pretty incoherent, and you didn't miss anything."

I think I've wrote elsewhere: after I saw him speak, I stopped using reiserfs.

Of course, none of the above has any bearing on whether he's a wife killer. I just thought he was strange.

Oh, we're all a little nutty in our own special way.

At least he was just writing code, and not dispensing medica-er.. nevermind.

In addition, Reiser alleged that Sturgeon wrote into a contract that Reiser must participate in "Death Yoga,"...
