That’s how much the timing circuit gains in one hour.

Now, the purists out there would say I have to correct this, but at this time I really want to crack on with other, more exciting stuff -like getting two PIC’s to chat to each other via the I2C communications I’ve been talking about for the last few days.

Anyway, I’ve now got the bottom six digits showing seconds, minutes and hours as it should. And yes, its showing it in the right format -the seconds and minutes roll over at sixty as they should.

This only took a matter of minutes in ‘C’!  If I’d tried to do this in assembler, it would have taken forever to write and debug.

So, its down to Maplin’s to buy their entire stock of FA02C green segment displays (7) along with their entire stock of BC547C’s (…Er. One…)

More pictures later.
