Hey all - wow.. it's been a while! I just wanted to do a quick post on PiHole

I have a done quick write up at http://8bit.kiwi/pi-hole/

So quick I haven't actually reviewed it yet, but feel free to jump in and have a play. There's nothing new there, it's just my experience of installing PiHole at home on a VM (http://dietpi.com/download) to handle all my DNS requests.. and blackhole anything shitty.

If you want to know more, check out https://pi-hole.net/

Sorry for the brief and random post - I actually swung past and saw the THS CTF post so will check in a bit more often..  no excuses, other than a 20hr/day job and two little boys to look after.

I love the Pi-Hole! ;)

I have used one for a few years now and I can hardly imagine going back...

If you want to be REALLY cheeky...you can replace the 'blocked message' with something a little more fun...

The power needed is virtually nil as well...A Raspberry Pi Zero handles the job, no problem...and if you are feeling saucy, the Rpi Zero W can handle the job without a single additional accessory...

Now...whether it is wise to run your DNS from a wireless connection...well...;)
