Today we're talking about some of my favorite features of Pi-hole 5.0. Including:
WARNING! WARNING! Upgrading from 4.x is a one-way operation!
Per-client blocking (you can setup, for example, a group machines called "kids" and apply specific domain block/allow lists and domains to them)
More granular detail (especially if there are issues) when blocklists get updated
Better, richer debug log output
I also talk about a great companion for yor Pi-hole: a command-line Internet speed test! Hat tip to Javali over at the 7MS forums who told me about this.
Additionally, I briefly mention "Hashy" (the nickname of my password cracking rig), give you some stay-at-home streaming TV show recommendations, and give you a quick house rebuild update!
