Introduced a friend to LastPass about 3 months ago. He's reported that it's saved him so much time since he's started using it. I sat down with him today and did the security check... 2%. WTF. 377 sites using the same password. THE HELL DUDE!

@rusmov @xorowl @digitalbaboon Since we're on the topic of privacy and ad blocking and what not, especially on mobile. If you guys like to tinker I highly recommend grabbing a raspberry pi and setting up PiHole (pi-hole.net/) and OpenVPN. Connect your whole household up to ad blocking and get it on the go with the VPN. Added bonus being able to manage your home servers w/o having to open up extra ports to the interwebs.

Other than that tho', no idea.
