Some folks at work were waxing ecstatic about how a Pi-hole made such a huge difference in ad blocking. I thought installation would be a little bit more effort than value for my time. Then I found a small window of free time this weekend and thought “what the heck, let’s give it a shot.”
Commonly affiliated with Raspberry Pi devices, Pi-hole is actually quite easy to deploy on an Ubuntu device. After less than an hours worth of work, I had the whole stack up and running. And boy does it make a difference! The screen cap below highlights the amount of ad blockage for just a couple of hours and a few devices.
Sorry I waited so long!
