I use this file to block ads on my computer.
But new adservers pop up everytime and those are added to this file by the community. It’s like a game of cat and mouse. So, the host file becomes obsolete very quickly. I was wondering if there is any way for my computer to check if a newer file is present and if it does, then download and replace it with my systems
I check the file manually every now and then and restart my computer. I know that runit has some way to restart the service without rebooting but I donn’t know. So, is there a way to automate this process.
