comment SSH with authorized_keys to an Ubuntu system with encrypted homedir?
I am not sure @Jeremy... I have upgraded my Ubuntu servers, haven't revisited this question in a while. I'd have to do some tests...

comment Why isn't my new USB 3.0 card / USB 3.0 hard drives working under FreeNAS?
I should have come back and posted. The answer is DO NOT USE WESTERN DIGITAL 2TB USB 3.0 DRIVES!!!!!!!! I went through no less than nine of these, all of them failed. Drives themselves were fine, the USB enclosures' USB-to-SATA adapters died on me!

comment Will the heat from the external hard disk cause any problems if I have the hard disk wrapped in the plasic?
No, it will not cause any unforeseen problems... it will cause problems that have been foreseen. Even you yourself already predict problems ;-)

+1. I did this as well and it's great.
