prologicdotplus I run my own DNS @ Home too11:25
prologicused to run CoreDNS but now use AdGuardHome11:26
prologicvery nice software11:26
prologicbiggest value for me -- cuts out ~20% of ad-based traffic, very fast, and custom blacklisting11:26
pdurbinseems to be open source:
prologicit is ofc :)11:30
prologicI'd hardly use anything non-OSS :D11:30
prologicI've made tiny contirbutions to it too, docker image improvements, clearly documented feature requests11:30
prologicone Im' looking forward to is "parental controls" where you can control what your children's devices can access when and for how long11:31
prologicwe have a Youtube problem that we a) can't control the content that oges on youtube and b) youtube is addictive to young minds11:31
pdurbinMy 7th grader just got a smart phone and we don't have YouTube on it.11:33
prologicbut my 4yr old acceses it via Safari :)11:34

prologiccurrently ot be simple I just blacklist YT and FB11:34
prologicand Ads are all blocked so pages are "less noisey" and faster to load11:34
prologicespecially noticable on news ies11:35
dotplusI just use dnsmasq and to avoid ads I list a bunch of domains that it "null-routes" for me.16:20
