It's down, just forced a pihole-up

Code:
 [i] Target: https://big.oisd.nl/
 [✗] Status: https://big.oisd.nl/ (503)
 [✗] List download failed: using previously cached list
 [✓] Parsed 0 exact domains and 217760 ABP-style domains (ignored 0 non-domain entries)

How long has this been down https://big.oisd.nl/
So it was up at 05:11 this morning and has gone down since.

Interesting read, thanks. I've just switched to Light and disabled oisd on the strength of that. Let's see how it goes for a while.

I have occasionally had to disable Pihole while running both Pro and oisd but that’s not difficult, I have an automation set so all I have to do is say “hey siri disable pihole” and it disables them for five minutes.

I really don't think you'll have any troubles with the 'new' Light. Essentially, Gerd removed 1Hosts lite from the sources and expanded his own personal black and white list to compensate, and OISD is no longer a source (it starts being included in the next list up, Multi aka Normal). Honestly, after reading the discussion and testing when it first posted, and switching over to Light, my AGH logs and stats are still about the same. All the usual trackers are blocked still, percentages are around the same as they always were give or take 1%.

The only differences I've really found have been family have stopped complaining about occasional issues with legit apps and email links, my FireTVs stopped thinking they were offline after sleep, and Google TagManager isn't blocked any more (but it's not really a tracker, anyway). I found it overwhelmingly positive, and on the plus side it's ~130k domains instead of 3-4x that, so it's lighter and faster too. I'd be very interested to hear how you get on in a week or so, and as always Gerd is immediately responsive to FP reports on GitHub if you do find any issues.

No, it was a private joke. The Wife had been having problems with Local papers not showing content but mine was. Turns out she has an option called Limit Ip Address Tracking on her Apple device. IE if I used Firefox it worked great... But using the built-in Browser Safari It wouldn't. Took me a minute to work it out though.
So the process goes turn it off disable/enable WiFi. When finished, rinse and repeat.



Also might be useful to note that I use Unbound as a backend for my pihole as well as Root servers.

On Apple mobile devices, you don't need to go through that rigmarole. Just click the little jigsaw looking icon next to the padlock in the address bar, and select 'Show IP address' (for that site only). The site will reload with no proxy/relay, and everything should work as normal. I dunno about Safari on macOS, because I run a VPN and thus don't have iCloud Private Relay active on that. I imagine it's similar.

As far as we can see the Extension thingy isn't in Her version of IOS which I think just gets security updates.
