You lose the first digit, but gain another one at the end.

I don't know Claude. There's a lot of French there to translate :) I'm on vacation just now. I'll look at it in more detail next week.

Salut

To be honest the first digit is always 2 , so it serves little purpose . I liked the mod with the transistors to make it 6 digit , but it's a lot of work .

Actually Chris , it does look better that way with the standard 5 digits . The other way looks a bit "weird" :) I was going to try it out for an experiment anyway , just to see how it looked .

Cheers !
