    Just giving an update on my projects in case anyone is interested. I was able to get some timed reminders up and running. I also got automatic DST conversion to work fairly seamlessly without using EEPROM. I’m not sure if I am allowed to post links in this forum so I will wait for someone to give me permission before I do that. All the code that I have written is available on my blog. I am wondering if it would be a good idea to put a millisecond delay on my check for DST since I am currently running the check on every iteration of the loop() method. Would it be advisable to only check every 333 milliseconds or so?

    You are absolutely welcome to post things like that here, including any appropriate links (thank you for asking). I think that the forum does still disallow image uploads, though.

    There’s rarely a compelling reason to checking for DST more than once per second, and often not more than once per minute or hour.


    Thanks, Windell!

    [My blog is here]( “My blog is here”) for anyone interested. **Spoiler alert** though, it contains code snippets. If you don’t want to learn how I modified the Alpha Clock Five you should not click this link.
