I thought that timesetup(offset,DST) would perform this function for me. It does not seem to do this. I may just add a button on the final clock that will toggle and persist regular and DST if it truly is not built into the timesetup function. I did this on my aquarium light timer but via the web browser.
Reading time doesn't require any special wait delay. It runs very fast and seeing seconds displayed on the analog panel meter is pretty cool. Can't wait to get the 3rd panel meter. Since the new ESP8266Basic code has had MASSIVE speed improvements, it is capable of nearly everything I want to do right now. The clock code runs perfectly in debug! Soon, I may try to do some BackEMF motor control for my model train control system.
