Re: [PLUG] Brighter plans: energy efficient, reliable firewall hardware

I've just recently been told about pi-hole which should allow adblocking on all devices on your network, without having to install adblockers on each client. I don't have the tech chops to fully evaluate this, but it sounds great.

However, it looks like it will require a "full" version of linux, not the kind of stripped-down version provided by Tomato, which lets it fit onto a Linksys WRT54G.

Anyone familiar with pi-hole? Is that correct--I now have another reason to replace my router with one of the mini x86 boxes we've been discussing?
