It's been several days since the OP has posted any progress, so I fear they may be stuck. With that in mind, I have attached a document that may give the OP some direction, and...

7805 So hot!
First, is your 12V power supply an unregulated "wall wart" ? If it is, then it's output might be considerably higher than 12V. Especially if it's rated for 1amp, and you are only...

PWM....without PWM?????
At a frequency of 1/30HZ, I think a software PWM is your only option (at least on an AVR). You can setup a timer for a 1mS compare. On each timer compare interrupt, you increment...

flash (writable) variable
Before you can get a good answer to your questions, I have a few questions for you. What type of "variables" to you plan on writing to flash ? Why can't these be written to EEPROM...
