Guy's, new wifi module fitted, all working brilliantly, can now log in from my pc and change settings, really happy :-)

Have constructed a nice case. All working.

Just one last question on this build, I have fitted an Infrared PIR HC-SR505 Motion Sensor Infrared Detector Module on the header with the button and LDR, I'm not sure if this is working and can't see an option when I connect to the clock to look at this option, is there any way to test this, or just leave on in an un-occupied room and check?

Thanks
Lee

Forget the last post guy's I'm an idiot, the PIR does indeed work, even found the time out setting of 300 seconds, how did I miss that...I have pics of the finished clock.

Thanks John, these tubes were ordered as a kit from Ebay, along with 4 neons and insulation.

I did hope to use colons as separators, but when I connected the 4 neons, (2 per colon) only one worked in each colon, so not sure if the PCB had the power to do this. Reverted back to the neons supplied with the kit but used the glass tubes.

That looks good! I'm interested in those brass(?) "flanges" you put at the base of each tube. Are those something that's commercially available or are they something custom you spun up on a lathe specifically for the purpose?

Look into it later when the dust is clearing off the crater.
