Let's Encrypt gives out certificates for free to anyone with a domain with the goal of making the internet a safer place.
Amazon Web Services issues free SSL certificates for use with Elastic Load Balancers and CloudFront. I pay about a nickel a month to use CloudFront as a CDN. Free custom SSL is a nice add-on to that.

Holy crap, guys.
This is a seriously fun game, best I've played in some time. It's a platformer with some great fight mechanics. Its difficulty curve keeps gently rising, and so far, it's done a great job of keeping thing progressively more challenging so I feel accomplished at the end of every area. I'm somewhere in the middle of the game, but I'm already having to solve puzzles by turning into a chicken, busting up the scenery with sweet luchador moves, and flipping between two parallel universes (often mid-jump).

Every now and then, I'm tempted to add "cool story, bro" to an inline comment:
# This script assumes it will run exactly once per day.
# Cool story, bro.

Given the way the third act plays out, it seems like one of many nods to 2001: A Space Odyssey (the novel, in this case):
"The thing's hollow — it goes on forever — and — oh my God! — it's full of stars!"

Valve announced the Steam Link yesterday. For $50, it will stream games from any Steam installation. That means I'll be able to sit in my living room playing a game that's actually running on my gaming PC at the other end of the house. I've wanted that for a long time.
Now I'll see if I can get through my remaining PS3 games before it's released.
