    The real bit is now more and more apps in iOS14 are taking advantage of Apple allowing htem to use their OWN encrypted DNS. This bypasses everything which is a PITA (and to me a security risk).

    NextDNS/Cloudflare/OpenDNS all offer a .mobileconfig and Apple at least made it so that if that file exists the apps HAVE to use it, they can't over ride that.

    Also @sacredhart ... just cuz you don't pay doesn't mean you aren't useful. I'm not saying even selling data to other companies but in research the raw data is very useful.

    The data is mined as "free"/consumers tend to get compromised quicker than corporate. Again, it's all anonymous (at least where I work it is) but it's very very useful to spot botnets/new viruses/etc... etc...

    yeah, it's a little more subtle than the green/red ones...

    ordered them from their NYC store... bought from there before. The only real issue I have is N&F sizing is all over the place, like a 36 is different on almost all my jeans so you really do need to read their tables (But yay for them giving the REAL sizes too!)

    just ordered naked & famous new purple core jeans... the red/green core ones looked really good when faded down to the core so hoping the purple works too!

    The Resident Evil: Village demo "Maiden" dropped yesterday. It's <3Gb and pretty short but as a tech demo it's pretty impressive to see what the PS5 can really do.

    It's ALMOST up at PC RTX shineyness levels and butter smooth for me. Worth checking out since it's free

    The Jack The Ripper DLC was excellent I thought. Really enjoyed how they flipped the game a bit and the story

    I posted this in the Pi thread, but just incase:

    for those using pihole if your update "breaks" and complains iproute2 is missing

    check /etc/apt/sources.list and make sure it's right... mine was zero'd somehow, and iproute2 is now in backports for Debian Buster.

    If you want the real tech info, I filed my findings (and suggestions) here:

    https://github.com/pi-hole/pi-hole/pull/­3537
    ... guess my username ... :P
