Title: 2 bulb clock

I am using the ArduiNIX and an Arduino YUN (It has a network co-processor) and with that I am able to get network time.  The Nixie clock self sets itself and also adjusts for DST/PST automatically.

I separated out the anodes for the two tubes so I could shut off a tube in the case where the leading digit of the hour is Zero.

I added floor lighting using 2n2222 transistors and blue LEDs.   Controllable as well by the software.

The display sends out  HOURS -> MINUTES -> Pause -> MONTH -> DAY -> YEAR -> Pause and repeat.

The code will turn off the display at night.

Here is the code for the Arduino YUN, enjoy

Code attached... Enjoy

Very slick.   

Does the yun use wireless or do you have an ethernet cable for NTP?
