Great work getting this up and running and with the code modifications. I can’t see the code because you need to give permission, but I’m interested in seeing the modifications to flip the display. Pairing this with a gyroscope sensor to orient the display depending on the orientation of the device would be cool.

To avoid having to flip it, I would recommend 18-20AWG wire (20 being easier). You can cut it the exact length and it fits in the grooves in the PCB and flat on the table, but you can also make them extra long then tuck the excess between the boards (which is much less fiddly). Lots of ways to skin this cat though.

Here’s how I build them without a case:

Thanks for sharing Udenk! Much appreciated. Also, if you want to have another go (or three) at the USB socket after I post a video showing the easiest way to do it, then let me know. I’ll send a few in the post for you.
