Disable wi-fi on a Raspberry Pi

note to self: you followed these instructions to permanently turn off wifi and bluetooth on newpie.local

[copying relevant text here too, just in case]

...If on Raspbian (usually), run:

systemctl disable wpa_supplicant
systemctl disable bluetooth
systemctl disable hciuart

Add to /boot/config.txt:

# Disable WiFi and Bluetooth
dtoverlay=pi3-disable-wifi
dtoverlay=pi3-disable-bt
