I finaly figured out that I can post threads with this thing (iPOD) only after changing my forum settings for the text editor to basic text.
I thought a blog about it would be a good test.
I am curious to find out how much I have to figure out to insert some of the fourms formatting feature here in plane text.

This is Version 1.3 of the "Using the Full PPDB" Project I am working on. I have modified and separated some code, changed some pin-outs, and used one of the PPDB's push-buttons to display the date. In later version updates, I will be adding more and more capabilities to the code.

The INT pin from the PCA9555 that controlls the segment will be disconnected, it will never be used since there are no input pins that will alter states.

Two 1 pin sockets will need to have the black plastic removed so you just have the two pins, these will be pressed into the
