@robalstona Thanks, I'll give that a try.

RTC (Without battery backup)
In hunting down other issues, I came across several statements that the M5STACK Fire doesn't have a Real Time Clock (RTC). However, if I set the RTC with machine.RTC().dateTime(<Time tuple>), it seems to work. If I think read back with machine.RTC().dateTime(), it seems to be keeping time just fine.
So is the issue that there isn't a battery-backup, and I'll have to set it each time I wake (which is just fine), or that the software for the RTC really doesn't work?
Running out of file descriptors
I'm getting a wierd error when I try to rerun my program:
I am loading
<MQTTClient object at 3fff0720>
Setting the date/RTC
Running off the end
[0;31mE (658885) vfs_fat: open: no free file descriptors[0m
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
OSError: [Errno 2] ENOENT
a ^D soft reset seems to fix it, but...
The dreaded "T" of death...
I'm working on a Micropython program to log MQTT results, and it needs the current time to do so.
I'm working in uPyCraft, with the typical write-download-run cycle, and eventually I get to the point where all my program appears to do is print a 'T', and then hang. I can ^C out of the program, and get back to the >>> prompt, and try running the program again, but the only thing that seems to clear the problem is to power-cycle the M5Stack Fire.
Any idea what's happening?
Source for counter example in video?
I'd like to use the M5stick to make a stopwatch for us old folks that can't see a regular analog one. (I need it for curling, where I can't wear my glasses.)
There is a great video on the examples page of a counter that looks like colored dot matrix, where the colors change with the digit value.
Does anyone know where I can find the source code for that? I've searched the github and I'm not seeing it.
