I’ve been using Let’s Encrypt on some of my less-public servers pretty much since day 1 of their beta program, and it’s a game-changing service. Their toolchain is top-notch as well, and strikes a great balance between preserving existing configuration, and making it easy to see what is modified.

They’ve got some good stuff in the pipeline as well - wildcard certificates will be an awesome addition.

This is a gut-wrenching 60 seconds.

That link is to Transport for NSW’s version of a for-TV commercial which was originally created a few years ago for New Zealand television.

The Kiwi version runs for about half-a-second longer than this version does, but I prefer NSW’s cut. I think it hits harder. Removing the last few frames reinforces the concept of immediately knowing the outcome of a mistake, without having to wait for physics to do it’s thing.
