Re: 52 weeks per year
GPS was a military project. Military stuff tends to sit in a box for a decade or so, and some people get rather annoyed when it doesn't work straight out of the crate and the bullets are flying.

Using HTTPS (rather than HTTP) means than an external observer (e.g., your friendly network admin) cannot detect that your machine is retrieving indexes with invalid signatures. Uh oh!

I really liked my Dash button, placed strategically inside the toilet paper cupboard.* But that appreciation evaporated when they sent me a different product to the one I wanted (which didn't fit properly in the holder). I'd much rather the button *only* send me an email if they cannot ship the right thing.
* It's amazing how little I think about TP during the day, and realize, at home, too late, that I should have been.
Consumer SSD endurance is less than 500 overwrites these days. If your workload is like you describe, I'd suggest adding another HDD. E.g., Samsung 850 PRO is 150TB written total; or 30 days under your scenario. Of course, you'd need about 30 SSDs to match the capacity, which takes you out to about 2.5 years before you have no space left.
Well, the size of the fat blobs will be inversely proportional to the inverse of the sewer inspection period, give or take a power/logarithm. How often does SWW send a guy down there, compared with the '90s? I'm guessing it takes at least a decafortnight or two to make a 340-govt-standard-Welsh-dresser fatberg.
I typed your numbers into the online calculator you cited, and it returned 0.8g deceleration. Since they're using the standard A=(V*V)/(2*D) equation, you might want to check your numbers. (Braking system strength tests intentionally do not test driver reaction time.)
Under 1g of deceleration, it's like coming down a 1:1 gradient on a planet 40% denser than earth. (SpaceX has no plans to test it on a planet like that, AFAIK.)
