Default Message of death

In message ,
Ignore the 'Press BACK UP to remove' message, it's on an auto-refresh
every 15 seconds, so you'll wear your thumb out. ;-)

Not my thumb :-) - I've just programmed a PIC 16F675 to send a 'backup'
signal every ten seconds!. Total component count only 8 parts, and I
could easily reduce it down to only 4 with less output power.

It's intended to remove the 'press red button' messages, but with the
present setting of 10 seconds would work for this application as well.
