I didn't catch this until today. Awesome! Definitely a huge step up from the original word clock, especially with the scrolling text thing!
Thank you Riva, didn't notice! I'm working on a small desk clock, only 150mm square, and I think your code is the best I've seen!
All is ready now but I'm facing serieus issues with the light: when using a sticker with a transparante background (so the letters are transparent) than the light is to strong and to much in one bundle (not enough spread) so you can't see the letters any more. Using a sticker with a white background makes it not transparent enough and my leds are almost not getting through... you only see it lighting up a bit... any hints how you handles this part?
where did you get the big stripboard plates ?
The led looks a bit focused. Did you get the diffuse LEDs or not? Diffuse leds can be viewed from a large range of angles. Their plastic housings look rougher than a smooth plastic surface.
