The MC34063A has formed such a “the Good the Bad and the Ugly” feeling in me that I wanted to write about it. I explore this chip, and while I don’t hate on it, I still am hesitant to recommend it.
Note – This project is a living one, and as such I’m going to update it as I work on it. The views I express are those of someone currently working on a project, and I may do dumb things as I work on it and figure out what works and what doesn’t. Anyway, fun side project. Volunteer tries to make a safe cracker for cheap (sub $40)
Importing art into KiCAD isn’t anything new. People have been doing it since the invention of fire and use of bone tools.
Sometimes you don’t want to share. That’s what this post is all about. Intentionally not sharing code and data. In this project, I wanted a private Git repo that I could access on my network through SSH.
I have many passwords. I also apparently have “security fatigue.”
What sucks is that I need my passwords to be stronger. I can’t remember them when they’re auto-generated and entirely random. There ARE solutions to my problem out there, like Mooltipass, Yubikey, and the U2F Zero. These are very cool, but the U2F Zero isn’t available at the moment, Yubikeys are $40 a piece, and Mooltipass is $79.
