RIP sweet prince. Important Gentoo dev just died.
Jonathan David Portnoy, 29, of Wilton, died August 10, 2016. Computer wizard, vaping expert, faithful friend, and original thinker, he was known for his wit and intellect. He was widely read, had eclectic interests, and willingly shared his knowledge.
His fascination with computers began at an early age. Totally self-taught, he became a prominent member of several online communities, including IRC White Tower and Gentoo Linux. At 15, Jon was named head of Gentoo Developers Relations. He excelled at software programming, which he pursued on both a freelance and volunteer basis.
Jon also recently became an e-cigarette aficionado and enjoyed creating a wide variety of unique flavors. He loved kayaking, propagating plants from cuttings, debating politics, and listening to music, especially at an electronic dance music festival.
Jon will be deeply missed by his parents, William and Diane Portnoy, his brother Joshua, and his friends – locally and online around the world – as well as his vape customers.
Donations in his memory may be made to the Perl Foundation at

So I moved my HDDS to the top of my case to allow for better cooling of my GPU and less clutter. Are there any foreseeable issues with only having them supported from one side?

How far can I push bluetooth? Here's what I want to do, is it possible before I buy the components?
>have other bluetooth devices paired to phone
>bluetooth keyboard, screen, and mic are mounted in my van
>when I get into van, priority switches to van mounted devices
>when I get out of van, priority switches to earpiece
Possible or no? I'm an ad hoc courier so I'm constantly going to new addresses, I'd like to have mapping/google set up in the van without having to get my phone out all the time.

I fell for the used workstation meme but want better temps than what I'm currently getting. Since my case has only one fan slot, I was thinking of adding one of these.
Should increase airflow and help temps drop, LTT tested case fans so I know I'll only need one inlet and one outlet.
>case fan as inlet
>this thing + psu fan as outlet

How can I stop feeling bad for asking individuals to pay me for my work?
I am a tech at a small university. I regularly get students with issues that are beyond our scope of repair, but we're allowed to freelance/contract out. Even after a decade of working, I still feel bad to ask students(or anyone in general) for $50-$100 for a HD replacement or OS install. It physically pains me to ask the people for money and I feel like a shitbag because it's such an easy job for me.
Ironically(?), I have no qualms stealing thousands in equipment every few months from each employer I've worked for. Recently, a Dean ordered a $2600 MBP(and requested we wipe the OSX partition and just run Windows). As soon as I received word, I ordered the cheapest MBP and swapped it out. I've jacked at least 10 Thinkpads and Thinkcentres in the past two months.
What's my problem?
