    I presented "Pi-hole - a Black Hole for Internet Ads!" at SciFiDevCon 2023:

    Speed up your browsing and protect your privacy and security by setting up a Pi-hole! It is free small DNS server that is "a black hole for Internet advertisements" that runs on a Raspberry Pi.  We'll talk briefly about the Raspberry Pi, then learn how to setup Pi-hole on your network for use with all of your devices.  With a low cost Raspberry Pi and an hour of setup time, we now surf faster and more securely, with nearly 40% of our DNS queries blocked.  It's amazing how much more enjoyable using the web can be, you'll cry when you have to surf without it.
