So this isn't a post about how clever I am - what I want to know is what things have y'all come up with to get more out of your PL-1?

When I got my PL1 a few months ago, I decided to edit a wiki on it but after I became comfortable, I didn't put attention to it. I'm open to contributors:

Reprogrammed buttons?

When I am street shooting, I set Fn to blank the screen. Lengthens battery life and makes me less self conscious.

I set it such that the magnify focus area so that it works easily.

Changed any of the defaults?

I set up Reset 1 to be for normal operation with Autofocus Lenses
I set up Reset 2 to be for use with legacy Manual Focus Lenses
I shoot JPEG+RAW and set max quality on JPEGs (compression etc...)
I normally use "A" mode
Often, I use Single Center AF rectangle

Custom firmware (though I'm certainly not brave enough to try this myself)

Is there any?
