Now running my own VPN and PiHole

During my “nerdy-hour on Sunday” I installed OpenVPN on my home-server :)

Installation was a breeze (using this guide), with the following caveats:

Even easier was installing PiHole for capturing all ads- and tracking-code (using this guide). I’ve left most settings as-is, but I also block to stop ads from appearing in my PodCasting app (added bonus is less procrastination).

So that’s it! No more ads on my devices, safe internet on public WiFi and always the Dutch selection of Netflix.

By the way, running Bungie on Ubuntu right now and that’s a very pleasurable experience. Recommended!
