Gidday,

First, the left alignment of the default clock's digital text display doesn't suit me too well, so I learnt how to change it (as per the diff at the bottom). Maybe others prefer the text centered too?

Second, I've been enjoying the module writing learning experience lately, and have been taking notes about some of the things which I didn't understand straight away. Maybe other people also starting out with this would like to read, and maybe share their experiences too (and let raster and co. lean back and focus on coding more of that good stuff!!).

So far I've got four basic entires on my not-oft-visited blog, and I'm going to add more as I progress (and gradually improve my writing style). I have also been working on a full "creation of an e17 module" article, which I'll post once the module I'm working on is complete (and more of my embarassing misunderstandings are resolved) and ready to use for screenshots and code examples.

Anyway, here are the links for the interested - feel free to comment and amend my mistakes!

And the text centering patch for anyone out there who prefers it that way too:
