More CircuitPython capacitive touch sensing madness w/ the Pico. Now I can do touch sliders and touch wheels. Is this board interesting to anyone else, should I put it in my Tindie store?

While working on the Mega IIe, I saw this "glitch" on the Apple II PH0 clock. Here's what it is, how to measure it, and why it happens.

150mAh LiPo arrived, is tiny. I also ordered some LIR1254 65mAh* and LIR1654 110mAh* rechargeable Li-Ion coin cell batteries, cannot wait for them to arrive!
* alleged capacity ratings, we'll see 😆

Completed my wooden rack for the #commodore trinity. Internally mounted socket strip means whole lot powered by 1 plug. Used chrome car trim to finish off the edges.

GitHub is struggling to contain an ongoing attack that’s flooding the site with millions of code repositories. These repositories contain obfuscated malware that steals passwords and cryptocurrency from developer devices, researchers said.

The malicious repositories are clones of legitimate ones, making them hard to distinguish to the casual eye. An unknown party has automated a process that forks legitimate repositories, meaning the source code is copied so developers can use it in an independent project that builds on the original one. The result is millions of forks with names identical to the original one that add a payload that’s wrapped under seven layers of obfuscation. To make matters worse, some people, unaware of the malice of these imitators, are forking the forks, which adds to the flood.

“Most of the forked repos are quickly removed by GitHub, which identifies the automation,” Matan Giladi and Gil David, researchers at security firm Apiiro, wrote Wednesday. “However, the automation detection seems to miss many repos, and the ones that were uploaded manually survive. Because the whole attack chain seems to be mostly automated on a large scale, the 1% that survive still amount to thousands of malicious repos.”
