    Extremely high SMART failure rate in my FreeNAS

    " long tests every 3 days, and the pool is scrubbed every 14th and 29th of the month. " As an outside observer (I don't own a NAS), isn't this a lot of extra wear and tear on those drives? Not that it's in any way related to your problems.

    how can i get rid of dust on my hardware?

    I agree with cageymaru. I bought one of those electric dusters and it's so much better than the hassle of duster cans, Shop-Vacs, air compressors or other methods. It will pay for itself in no time with how expensive those cans are.

    VW Used Software In 482K Diesels To Skirt US Clean-Air Rules

    That's utter bullshit. It was caused by the drive for higher corporate profits and quicker extraction of oil. BP was completely at fault. The EPA doesn't operate those drilling platforms.

    Microsoft stoops to new low

    So the more machines they can get it on, they can turn those machines into bittorrent servers, for updates for more customers. I assume that's what the "BT" in the directory name is for. Seems pretty shady to me.

    Thirteen Windows 10 Bugs Microsoft Needs To Fix Right Now

    I sure as hell would hope so, considering it's a free update to the most popular operating system in the world. One fifth of the US population (The ~67 Million Windows 10 Installations so far) is an impressive number, if you leave out the rest of the world, and those facts.

    Water loop advice.. safe to split and merge flow?

    Splitting the flow seems pointless to me, since it's all one system and combined at the pump anyway. You should have enough cooling there to cool just about anything, doing it normally, without having to worry about any temps.
