    Is there a way that you could post something about how to do this as a 12-hr format rather than a 24-hour format?

    I can read it in 24 but I am used to 12 and it would just be convenient. Maybe a way to even put in a AM/PM LED would be awesome.

    Why did you lay the bits in that configuration? For reading 6-7 bits, I'd be happier with them L-R, stacked vertically. L

    I don't understand about what you writing,bee more specific.

    You laid the LEDs as vertical strips of 2+4 and 3+4. For reading binary I'd (personally) like all 6/7 bits in a straight Left to Right, I'm interested as to why you split into the 2+4 & 3+4 vertical rather than going 6,7 horizontal. L

    OK that answers it. L
