2023-11-20 (M) EWC_Cyberdeck mode0 and mode1

I almost ordered colored encoder knobs when I started this project, but I made my own. I thought about cutting and painting layers of plywood, then gluing them together, or running the printer, but I had some commercial knobs already. I tried to cut circles of electrical tape for the tops but could not be precise enough. The best results were when I applied a tape strip and used a scalpel to trim the excess. They look all right from a distance.

The only significant problem with mode0 was that I displayed the encoders and potentiomers on the wrong side of the screen. I dug into the display code and found that I put the calls into neat functions, so my changes should make the rest of the modes easy to handle. I moved the words from left to right by modifying some text strings. The on-screen values were trickier, but I found the correct heights through trial and error. I also discovered a few lines in the wrong order prevented me from displaying the values when the mode started. The first two modes are functional, and I can move to the third.
