NxFilter is a product I’ve used for years as a self hosted, DNS-based content filter. Even better, it’s free for environments up to 25 users. Today, I walk you through the installation and configuration process to get it running on a Raspberry Pi. If you’ve ever wanted a more configurable Pi-Hole, this video is for you.

But first… What am I drinking???

Ex Novo (Portland, OR) Witch Window Dry-Hopped Pilsner. Clocking in at 5.4%, this is a pilsner that is confusing itself with a session IPA. Very hoppy, very little malt, and a bit grassy and bitter. For me, it just misses the mark of what it wanted to be. 2/5.
