kwilliams6588233dI just told mine "it helps block ads and malware" when explaining what PiHole is and she was like "okay 🤷".
bittersweet43654233dSadly "where is all our data going" is something we are all wondering.
HiFiWiFiSciFi4089233d@bittersweet yeah, problem is in my field she thinks I should just know where the data goes.
And since my response is always, “I don’t effing know” she thinks it’s me that’s up to something. (Prolly porn) I once pulled up wireshark just to show her how much data that was to parse... I don’t think she believes me.
At the same time, it’s probably the kids... they stream and FaceTime more... but I don’t want to throw them under the bus without evidence.
So a few hundred bucks later we are finally going to get to the bottom of this EMPERICALLY!
bittersweet43654233d@HiFiWiFiSciFi Haha I meant it more like "our data might go to Facebook, or the NSA, or the Chinese/Russians, who knows"
But you meant data caps... Fuck those. Yeah, best you can do is a raspberry pi which meters all connections in the house, and give every device a static IP.
