Oh! This is exciting!

I never got around to installing the new firmware chip I bought from you, the one that corrects for the change in when Daylight Savings happens. I just wasn't able to remove the AM/PM LED diode. Is there a trick to removing it?

With the recent announcement of the possible permanence of Daylight Savings time all the time, I decided to just turn back on the NixiChron and use it as-is. This new firmware might be something I might want, if I can only get at the chip!

Thanks!

This new software Michael B and his team has released is fantastic!   I have it on all my Thomas clocks and it clearly addressed the features needed to makes this a "no brainer" upgrade.

Can you explain a bit more about the Cathode Poisoning Prevention feature?
Thanks,
Steve
