comment Does having machined brake surface on rims matter?
Fwiw, I played bike polo for about a year on a set of velocity chukker rims that were not machined. The bike stopped well with standard cheap road calipers(shimano sora) and I've finally worn through most of the annodizing on the front wheel after that time.

comment need cycling eyewear, but fogging is a big problem
I typically wear a cycling cap under my helmet with a brim or a helmet with a built in brim (bern allston or watts) which help cut down on the rain on the glasses as well.

I have a new favorite set of safety glasses. These are similar, but with more adjustability with temple length adjustment and angle adjustment, which allow you to adjust to best fit your face and gear (balaclava / helmet / hat). amazon.com/gp/product/B009YNX9Q6/…

comment What are good ways to dry shoes?
Fixed links and images. I mention dry guy boot dryer, but there are several other manufacturers making boot dryers, this is just the one I have and was one of the cheaper ones I found on amazon.

comment Fat Tyre Punctures
FWIW. I ran a 'ghetto tubeless' setup on a stock surly pugsley for a while with no issues other than needing a fresh squirt of stans after a while.

comment Fat Tyre Punctures
@Blam - No reason you couldn't use that type of sealant, but my google-fu pulled up a lot of references to people using stans in their tubes, most likely because they already had it hanging around and had the tools to inject it in the tubes.
