How to setup DNS-over-HTTPS on Fedora based PiHole.
Ref: https://bendews.com/posts/implement-dns-over-https/

I've now verified these instructions, and written a script that's available on github.  https://github.com/travisdh1/FedPiHSecDNS

Also wrote a script as I'll probably be doing this a few more times.  It's available on my github page: https://github.com/travisdh1/FedPiHSecDNS

Got Lenovo? You DO NOT CONTROL your network!

Let's start from the beginning here, which was the weeks before Superfish announcement.  Let me stress before.  So the first steps in the song and dance routine was reclassifying a number of lines of "business" class computers to consumer class machines, only on their website and obviously hoping nobody would notice.  Of course, they claimed that it was never installed on any business class machines even tho it was verified on their business lines. 

LANLess, the new thinking in network design.

First things first, the original idea here comes from Scott Alan Miller.  The first presentation on the topic can be seen at https://mangolassi.it/topic/11257/scott-alan-miller-the-brave-new-lanless-future


LANLess - the word.

Yes, the word.  It encapsulates an idea.  Yes, an idea, nothing more.

LAN - Yes, we're talking about designing a network.  Today this means much more than just a local LAN.

A church I'm working with had an HDMI over Ethernet system to distribute a slideshow across their campus go bad.  I'm told it originally worked, but I had never actually seen it functional.  Anyway, it was pushing HDMI over Ethernet with the shortest run being ~75ft and the longest run over 300ft.  Just not going to work!  They already had the network cables in place tho, which gave me a different idea on how they could get their little presentation working.
