Python has some fairly in-depth time handling, including timezone awareness that can come in handy when clocks change around this time of year.
If you keep it in the application you can brighten it when there's some user input than dim it again after a few seconds to reduce burn-in on the oled. Another option would be to use a light sensor so brightness is related to ambient light rather than time of day.
Self adhesive laminating pouches can make quite a tidy solution. Print up a sheet to cover the back panel with any labels you want, laminate, trim to size and stick in position. Your call on whether to make the necessary cutouts for connectors before or after sticking.
Thanks! Good info all around, definitely had not thought of the laminating pouches.
As it stands the display goes blank after 10 seconds of no user input to avoid OLED burn in. However it is a bit unnecessarily bright at night.
