13 - move everything portage-related out of /usr/ into /var/ [1]
14 - move all of these to the ssd:
15 - /var
16 - /home
17 - /srv
18 - /media
19 - /mount
21 and anything else written to frequently.
23 You won't find much in the way of real recommendations on this, as it's
24 all subject to how you want it to work best. What you will find out
25 there is much opinion about what is good, I just offered you mine.
27 A good starting point might be to look at projects like openelec for
28 Raspberry Pi and see how they do it, the use-case looks similar to yours
33 [1] IIRC this is the new portage default anyway unless you change it.
34 Make *much* more sense to change it
