Don't pipe to your shell

True story: a friend (JayPikay) of mine told me better not to pipe my shell directly.

Don't trust unknown sources...
He mentioned the following instead:

curl -sSL -o install.sh https://install.pi-hole.net

bash install.sh

Thanks for sharing, also read more about piping wget or curl to bash or sh is stupid.

Verifying my Block List

All hosts in the my Block List are validated (is host reachable and not 404ed).

Goal: Keep only necessary entries in the Block List not old dead hosts.

You hate Ads? You love privacy?

A simple solution is to install Pi-hole, a network-wide ad blocking via your own Linux hardware.

Let's block ads for all your devices without the need to install client-side software.

I am running my Pi-hole on my Raspberry 3 with Noobs

You will need CURL to proceed:
sudo apt-get install curl

Just enter the following in your console and Pi-hole will install itself:
curl -sSL https://install.pi-hole.net | bash

Tip: Use custom DNS Server:
Digitalcourage: 85.214.20.141 and Chaos Computer Club: 213.73.91.35
85.214.20.141, 213.73.91.35

last but not least your router (e.g. FRITZ!Box) needs to use your device (Raspberry) as primary DNS Server.
