# Day Time Aware
Sets screen brightness based on time of day and light sensor values.
It uses a logarithmic function on the sensor value and applies the time of day in seconds (highest value at 14:00)

# User Interactable
The user can change the brightness at any time. When the user changed the brightness the script will stop calculating new values and reduce runtime.
( ! ) To resume automatic brightness calculation just set the screen brightness to 0.

# Reduces Runtime = Conserves Energy
While screen is off the script stops.
The script slows down when the user sets a different brightness or when the sensor value reads 0 to conserve energy.

# Versions

5 - Add startup routine for easier modifications by the user
4 - Add inertia to calculated brightness (to prevent hectic flickering in low light situations)
3 - Fix faulty literal value resulting in really small brightness values
2 - Simpler screen brightness calculaion
