  • Arguing with the TV licence man that I don't have to pay just because I have some bbc DVDs
    Pi-hole should do that. It blocks ads across your network
  • Remodeling and I feel VERY rushed to try to figure out smart home. Guidance on dealing with locking down hardware like specific appliances, electrician wiring, what I need to have done 100% while the walls are down. Also any beginner setup guides going through what is great to have for smart homes?
    Having the PiHole on the LAN side of the modem allows you to create a DNS sink that just accidentally intentionally misplaces all that creepy data mining traffic that smart homes inevitably generate. This also can do 90% of the heavy lifting for ad-blockers and the like to keep your Porn YouTube viewing ad free. If you want to go ProtectiveParentTM then you can even block all those dirty websites right here. Plenty of tutorials and FAQs over at r/pihole.
  • ULPT Request: I live in a dorm. Owner of this dorm limit our internet speed up to 256kbps when we reach 16gb per month. Is there any way to solve this problem?
    This won't circumvent the cap but install adblockers on everything you can or get a Pihole setup to do that. You can cut down a ton of data usage this way. Adblocking has cut my mobile data usage (which I pay for every GB) by 50%. I suggest Blokada 4 (not 5, it's missing a bunch of features due to the massive overhaul). And you can't get it on Google Play cuz it's been blocked by Google, should use the F-Droid option or if you don't want to learn about that, the survey APK files is there too, take your pick

    One Pi (raspberrypi) is running Pi-hole, the other Pi (serverpi) is running a few Docker containers such as Homer and File Browser (with a 1TB SSD, this is acting as a pseudo NAS).

  • Android Phones Sharing Significant User Data Without Opt-Outs
    Fallback DNS to when no DNS server is provided by the network. In my experience it's extremely rare that a network doesn't provide a DNS server, so this fallback is rarely ever used (also on networks you control you should r/selfhosted your own DNS server)
  • The advertising industry is rewiring our brains, and making us consume more as resources deplete.

  • Set up service name.mydomain.com on LAN?
