Liudr,That is so close to what I want.I went to your site but as I am new to this, I couldn't find the sketch for the project.
While I have you though, couple of questions:1 - The display looks/seems/is different to the one I bought.I bought the main board - an Etherten - and a display as t was obvious I would need one.But mind is only a 2 line display. In your example it is a 4 line.2 - As ther is now an RTC available for the Arduino, I want to get one - though just now I realise/think it doesn't have a battery, so what's the point? - I don't know how it would "fit" into what you built.3 - (I can't count) Is there a "spare pin" which is an "alarm status output"?That is: A pin which goes high when the alarm is active?Actualy a couple of spare pins would be nice.And it begs another question:4 - How long is the alarm active?
Oh, P.S.This phi_shield....Which I take it goes between the main board and the display.I take it I buy it from you?
Thanks, got the Sketch for the clock.I am really going to make a fool of myself how.I am reading the instructions at the top of the sketch and it tells me to download the libraries - fair enough - and put them in arduino\sketchbooks\libraries\.....I'm confused.Slight problem:When I downloaded the arduino program it unzipped into "arduino-1.0" which is in C:\program filesThe sketchs I make/get/what ever are in "My documents\arduino"So where do these files go? In the program's directory or the My documents part?I can try both in the mean time.Oh, and should I re-name my "main" directory from arduino-1.0 to just arduino?
I'll look at the links you supplied and get to order the phi-2 shield, and RTC.
