[dns-operations] The Dude and www.mikrotik.com IN A probes

Hi folks,

MikroTik makes available a free Windows based tool called 'The Dude',
which does network service discovery, including DNS based probing.  If
you happen to see IN A queries for www.mikrotik.com and PTR queries for
the associated addresses, with sequentially incrementing DNS IDs,
chances are its The Dude.

For posterity in case anyone goes inquiring about this (like me in
the future and forgetting what it was), hopefully they'll run into this
