Putting everything in my pi-hole

This week I set up a pi-hole on my home network, and apart from a couple of minor hiccups, it has been very nice so far. If you haven’t heard of it, pi-hole is software that handles DNS requests and blocks online ads for every device on your home network, even on devices which won’t normally let you install a plugin like Adblock Plus (like smart TVs and un-rooted phones). The installation guide was nice and simple, and even setting up a DNS-over-HTTPS client was pretty straightforward.
