I was just on mouser earlier trying to find a display driver, and I felt it was just too far over my head, and more than half of them were just enormous.
On the last iteration of this project, I lifted up the display using those machine headers over at sparkfun, but I don't think I'd be able to fit the 595 dip package under this one, or would want to. I think I may use the headers anyway to lift it up for ventilation so it'll have a better life span, and I can replace it easier.
We'll see about flickery. There's not a huge amount of stuff happening with the sensor... I worry most about when I put the rotary encoder in there... I'll probably be back in the forum because I'm not thrilled with the solution I came up with last time. (too much code and not enough precision)
