I'm interested in OpenDNS and LibreDNS but it would be good to read some kind of in-depth comparison if one is available.

Set up a spare as a mixnode for their testnet, and a Xmrig miner. Will soon have posts written guiding others to do the same.

My various setups (primary machine, home etc.) seem to challenge me weekly, but the satisfaction of fixing issues and taking back control makes the stress worthwhile.

I had ~60GB going spare on my so figured I may as well make the most of it and set up for file sharing across my LAN. I'm allowing access only from mine and my partner's IPs (which are bound to our MACs) but I'm concerned the share isn't encrypted, so anyone could just walk up to the Pi and take out the SD.
