#Twatch clock grabs time from network

Posted on Monday, May 28th, 2012 in #twatch by DP

David turned the Twitter streaming #Twatch into clock that pull time from a SNTP network server. The coding is done, and it’s available for download. David also included documentation in the download package, as well as on his blog.

The zip file has complete source, firmware, and a PowerShell module for using the LCD emulation.
