Updates to wordclock

A few years ago I made a MicroPython based word clock ( example). I’ve refreshed it to work with the latest version of MicroPython and added a MQTT based interface to Home Assistant.

This interface turned out quite nice, as the clock appears as a dimmable lamp, letting me automatically dim it at night and turn it almost off during the early hours of the day. This reduces the glow in the lounge at night.
