Here is, finally, one week later than planned, the sequel to my initial Ice Tube VFD clock .
It is able to :
- get the time from the internet and automatically synchronise itself (why have to set the time and use a battery to keep it running when disconnected, if we have Internet access ?)
- periodically fetch some weather data and display it
- do searches on Twitter and display the 1st result
So rather than “simply” displaying the time, every 15secs it alternates between the time, the weather and a Twitter message.
