    Edit:
    System Dns changed to NextDns. They have a Dns server in India which is as fast as cloudflare. Custom blocklists enabled in next dns, system implimentaion is done with yoga dns app and all the filters in adguard except adguard's own removed. The major filtering is done in Nextdns server and some cosmetic level filtering with adguard, hence the browsing and page loading is a bit faster i feel. Oh and the the UI of NextDns is just awesome really a "piehole" as a service.

    Today I had an urge to try out Chromium and i dowloaded it from "Download Chromium" and the very next moment i have recevied evidence of Symantec download insight working:giggle::giggle:.. This can be a very good option to prevet zero day attacks. I am impressed.

    If you can live with such a high sensitivity it can be pretty strong against zero days .
    But false positives are insane with this feature.

    Made some changes to Firewall rules. Added Two new rules to block TCP and UDP traffic to block both incoming and outgoing traffic on port 53. Blocked initial netbios and dhcp traffic and enabled rule to block all traffic till firewall starts.(This is to prevent any unencrypted dns traffic from any application during system startup through port 53 and to force all dns through port 443 via Yoga DNS application.) Apart from these a few other rules are also changed to prevent UPnP discovery ( as mitigation to the newly found UPnP CVe.)

    Stronger multi score then a 24 threaded Xeon not bad and the improvement of Zen 2 over Zen 1 is very strong dam the Zen r7 1700x 16 threaded CPU is comparable to your 12 threaded CPU on base clocks (200 MHz higher base clocks on your CPU ).
    haven't seen such a IPC improvement per gen at Intel for some time .
