Nice, the filter list has been added to NextDNS.
FYI Mozilla / Firefox shares user data with Google, Leanplum, and Adjust  by default except on Klar  . Learn how to opt-out here . Also doesn't hurt to search for "telemetry" in `about:config` (not available on Firefox iOS) and toggle the entries to `false`.
Added to SSL Server Test 🙂
Some helpful guides I've found on GitHub for a WireGuard/Pi-hole/encrypted DNS setup:
Found a blog post related to that comparison video w/ a more fleshed out script to test DNS blocking effectiveness.
Some fitler list ideas: https://firebog.net
Pros: increased security due to leveraging threat intelligence feeds across multiple providers.
Cons: latency is coupled to the slowest resolver, and decreased privacy due to sending DNS requests to multiple 3rd party resolvers (rather than one or even none w/ something like Unbound).
I wonder if this idea has been implemented anywhere...
Watching this video  comparing the malware blocking effectiveness of 3rd party DNS resolvers got me thinking...
For some security focused use cases wouldn't it be valuable if there were a way to leverage multiple DNS resolvers with a strategy where DNS requests are sent to multiple resolvers in parallel and responses are returned only once it's determined that no resolver blocked the request? 🤔
Looks like the dev also made an app for AdGuard Home 😯
Playing with Pi-hole  and PiVPN  on a VPS and learned about the Pi-hole Remote iOS app  on the subreddit . Wow, it’s really nice! 😍
If you're in tech too, you're not there because you're a superstar of a human few others can compare.
You're there because your knowledge and skills for greasing the wheels of capitalism is much more valuable to the capital owning class than feeding and clothing everyone.
TIL reading CitizenLab's "Great iPwn" report from last month  that Turkey’s Government-run Computer Emergency Response Team (USOM)  maintains a public filterlist of malicious hosts they observe.

About 86,000 of the about 1,000,000 videos has GPS coordinates in their metadata. Here is a map of those GPS coordinates https://kylemcdonald.net/parler/map/
Check it out and look to see if any Parler users uploaded videos from your local community. If you send me the IDs of those videos I'll download them for you
