[Discuss] And now: Pi-Hole

I really should have set this up much sooner. It isn't difficult, and
since I was already using dnsmasq for local hosts and cache anyway it
was almost a straight drop-in. I had to change my local config a bit
because dnsmasq gets cranky when it detects duplicate configuration

It's interesting to see what it blocks, and the top blocked domains list
is telling: and
look-ups are blocked 10-50 times as often as other advertising domains.
