I've been browsing The forum on my phone more, lately. Using the enhanced mobile view I've found that ads take up almost half the screen.

What are you guys using to block the omnipresent Brownells and Cabela's ads? I've poked around chrome and Firefox mobile trying to get something to work, but no luck.

I've got a moto G6 if it matters.

I use a combination add ons of Ublock origin, ghostery and privacy badger. Blocks the ads and helps somewhat with blocking trackers. Also Adstop works well.

Thanks. I'll try those out.

I don't care about tracking, but suppressing the big ads would make reading easier.

I use a pi-hole. It keeps ads off the entire network, not just one system.
Elaborate on that, is it installed on your router? Windows? like a firewall? DNS? How many comps on your network?

Oh i see. Prob is i dont have a router anymore. It got fried. So opening ports wont happen. Im running off my hotspot on my phone which is DSL speed from 2003...

I have it installed on a Raspberry Pi. It keeps a server, a desktop, a media center, a phone, a tablet, a Roku, and anything else that I may bring home ad-free. I also use it to block domains. Nothing from *.facebook.* is allowed on my network.

I probably could put it on my router since I built that myself as well. But then I wouldn't have another blinky box in my den. :p

I dont see any ads on this site browsing mobile except the UNICEF one always at the top, and an occasional Kel-Tec and Brownells. I had no idea what UNICEF was, but it looked like UN shit so I clicked, weird ad placement for a gun board if you ask me, whatever.

Are Rasberry Pi's hard to setup? I have no skillset in soldering or programming lol. I would like to all in one emulator homeport, so I can retro game when the GF is asleep. I'm an idiot dude, I love my old video games lol.

Gotcha, then I will suggest if users here have basic network knowhow to just set it up through the DNS. It’s shareware so no fees yet.

Oh an engineer I see. I was curious by having “PI” in be name if a Raspberry would also work. I also block Facebook domain but through my router normally. PM me if your interested in building and selling a router. Otherwise I’ll order a linksys wrtAC3200acm when I can, I used a N900 for years but litterally had 2 get fried along with 2 high quality surge protectors...not happy...thing is they both lost all ability for inbound connections and WiFi, although for whatever reason the local network was fine...so basically a $200 4 port, gloss black, fancy looking switch...lame lol

I used them as target practice...you can’t even email Netgear nowadays to give them a piece of your mind.

They are quite easy. You basically put it in a small plastic case, put an image on a sdcard, and plug it in. No soldering or programming needed.

You can of course go crazy with them if you really want to.

I bought a small little computer and filled it up with parts. It was way more than a store-bought ready made one. I use pfsense on it as the router software. It works pretty well. I have mine attached to an uniteruptable power supply so it stays safe. I keep it on a shelf in my closet.

Drools on beard slightly....ut oh I’m doing it again. Ok well then maybe try to build my own with spare parts laying around.

Yea little PI’s are super usefull you can get a handful of them on eBay for cheap!!! Version 3 has Bluetooth and WiFi!!! (Maybe older versions do?) OS’s are usually freeware. CHeck this link out then watch some you tube videos man, retro gaming is on the list there, if you can install a web browser on your desktop or lab top you can “Program” a ”PI” or 2 or 10!!!! Super simple basic “need” stuff they will teach you in high school. No C++ knowledge required. (I forgot most of mine anyways)

I put the PiHole in a clear case so all the blinky lights could shine though in all their glory.



In my den.
