I've recently dusted off one of my Raspberry Pi's and decided to put it to work! Right now it's connected to my home network serving as a DNS server for my router and running Pi-Hole to accomplish that, I'm blocking ads, trackers, malicious domains, etc at the network level instead of using browser plugins to accomplish this. This allows me to set it and forget it for the most part for any device connected to my home router, including smart phones and tablets that normally serve in app banners. No more! Also currently using it as a makeshift media player. I've got a 32GB USB thumb drive attached with music and albums that's connected to my stereo system. Because I now have commercial WiFi internet at home and monthly data caps (uhg) I'm trying not to stream as much media as I used to. Why stream albums and songs over the internet multiple times when you can just do this? Gotta save that precious bandwidth. Next plan is to just install some VNC software on it to control it from other devices connected to my home network, that way I can change music or media without having to get up and go over to the TV where I have it connected to do that. I have another Pi that I am going to eventually use as a weather station and weather cam... But that'll be a while.
