I miss the looks of the old digital clock, specifically, the bitmap
font used for it. Possible to add again as an alternative font for the
LCD mode?

Also, I found a bug in the LCD mode: 11:01 will be displayed as 11:1
etc. I only think this occurs when you don't display seconds.

Oh, and why is there two formats for both formats of the new digital
clock? I.e. two formats that display hours and minutes, and two
formats that also display seconds.
