Setup myself a private searx instance to use

@lyndon Does that really improve privacy? I think it would just distribute your search queries to all providers instead of one. Is the privacy benefit not only made when you share a public instance?

@mcol It isn't hosted on my local machine so it is on a VPS making it an improvement, especially as the VPS IP will change. Sharing it would help further with anonymity but it is a start.

@lyndon Ah yeah OK, makes sense, especially with a dynamic IP
