Link to Securing the Web With Lets Encrypt - Changelog

Very interesting podcast with Josh Ash on how Let's Encrypt started and about what it takes to start a new Certificate Authority. Well worth the listen if you work on the web like me and you interact with SSL certificates and Let's Encrypt on a daily basis.

Link to dog – a command-line DNS client (written in Rust)

dog is a command-line DNS client, like dig. It has colourful output, understands normal command-line argument syntax, supports the DNS-over-TLS and DNS-over-HTTPS protocols, and can emit JSON.

Looks good, and on Mac it can be install through homebrew (`brew install dog`).
