What is Pi-Hole?

Pi-Hole is a Linux network-level advertisement and internet tracker blocking application which acts as a DNS sinkhole (And optionally a DHCP server), intended for use on a private network. It is designed for use on embedded devices with network capability, such as the Raspberry Pi, but can be used on other machines running Linux and cloud implementations.
Pi-Hole has the ability to block traditional website adverts as well as adverts in unconventional places, such as smart TVs and mobile operating system adverts.

The Pi-hole project was created by Jacob Salmela as an “Open Source” alternative to the AdTrap.

Before I start on LEGO Mindstorms EV3 Alternative Wi-Fi Dongles, I came across a solution to the issue that arises with any Wi-Fi Dongle you use with your EV3 Brick. That is, any Dongle connected will stick out from the side of the brick, getting in the road of everything and allowing it to be easily to knocked from the EV3 Brick’s USB Socket.
