ClockIt with s3kr3t text mode

From the "Pointless but why not?" department comes a tweaked firmware for the ClockIt clock by SparkFun that adds a plain text mode (see video). The new firmware adds a hidden mode to show the time in English using an alphabet created for 7-segment displays. To change modes, press and hold DOWN then press and hold SNOOZE for two seconds (do the same to change back). The other change from the default firmware is that the display will dim between 8PM and 7AM. The modified code is here: clockit-text.zip. It's also linked from the code page.
