Pi-hole, EVERYONE should have one!

I knew about Pi-hole for ages, but for a long time i was looking for the "perfect" solution - running it on my beloved Synology NAS. As i'm not that familiar with all that Docker stuff, it didn't materialize yet.
Some weeks ago i stumbled across an old Raspberry Pi (model B, i think) that lay around in my office, waiting for being used.
So i gave it a try: flashed Raspbian, installed Pi-hole and WHOA, why didn't i do this when i first lerned about it's existance?

It's so easy, it's so elegant, it's so effective!
No more ads. Clean & fast browsing!

Everyone should have a Pi-hole!

PS: do you know about a similar no-brainer?

What the hell are we doing to the earth?

Just watched: Tschick. Landestheater Linz

Kannte Buch und Film, die Theateradaptierung in Linz ist höchst gelungen.
Tochter, Frau & me waren begeistert.
Klare Empfehlung!

Einziger Wehrmutstropfen: leider nur mehr ein paar Vormittagsvorstellungen im neuen Jahr :-(.

KeePass Autotype shortcut

OMG, i'm a KeePass user for ages, but just found the Window-title-dependent-autotype-shortcut (however this is called correctly).

Extremely usefull in corporate environment where e.g. Firefox' password-store is disabled.

How could i just survive without it until now?!
