Installing Pi-hole on an Orange Pi One
Using Foundation for Emails in Windows Subsystem for Linux with NVM
I recently integrated Pi-hole into my home network using an Orange Pi One and my TP-Link Archer C7 V2 router. I decided to outline my steps in case somebody else is wondering how to do it with that exact hardware.
Pi-Hole is an open source project that claims to be "a black hole for Internet advertisements", which means it is basically a local DNS with loopbacks for known ad servers. When you're done with this article, you'll have an ad-free experience for all the devices on your home network. Installing everything is a fairly easy process that will leave you feeling like a renegade from big data tracking.

Foundation for Emails was a revelation when it first came out. It uses NPM to help you build responsive emails that look mostly the same in various email clients. It inlines and compresses your HTML so you can pop it into Listrak and be done.
I use it at work all the time, but getting it to
npm install is getting harder and harder. Zurb hasn't maintained it in a long time, which is a disappointment to many.
I recently spent some time troubleshooting this on a Windows machine with Ubuntu installed via WSL, and I'd like to share how I got it working.
The St. Augustine Music Project

Firefox Focus: Taking Back the Mobile Web
I'm very excited to announce that I've launched a new website: The St. Augustine Music Project. I've wanted to create something for this city's wonderful music scene for quite some time, and all it took was a particularly storm Sunday to finally push me to it.
Using Bootstrap 4's Reboot with Custom Variables
I want to tell you a little bit about an app that has renewed my interest in using a smartphone as a web browsing device. Firefox Focus eliminates ads, tracking scripts, and the concept of browsing history.
I don't know if you've been keeping up with Bootstrap lately, but their version 4.0 release is coming along quite nicely. I'm a particular fan of its Reboot settings, which build upon Normalize.css to give some opinionated defaults. You can read about some of the plusses here, but that article skips over my favorite feature - modern system native fonts.
