Firmware mods for the Adafruit Icetube clock kit: new display modes


Firmware mods for the Adafruit Icetube clock kit: new display modes… DigiSage writes…

Over the weekend I added a new menu option called “set scnd”, short for “set seconds display”. It has three choices: “yes”, “no” and “fast”. If you pick “yes”, the Ice Tube Clock looks exactly the same. If you pick “no”, seconds are not displayed and a blinking dot is added between hours and minutes. If region is set to US, any leading 0 from hour is removed, and an A or P is added at the end of the clock to denote AM or PM. If you pick “fast”, then every display segment is used like this: HH.MM.SSxx where xx are hundredths of a second, so they scroll by really fast and look pretty nifty. I’ll post the modified firmware in a little while, it’s on my laptop which is at home and asleep, wife is going to wake it up for me when she gets back
