Re: Alpha font ties to Last x

The font size for the message area wasn't being set explicitly at all, it was using the last font selected, i.e. the topmost displayed line of the stack.

The font size used is now set explicitly to the base font size.

[DM41] Cooking timer

What a versatile machine :)

Traditionally, gifts used to be given on Christmas Day here in the UK but only opened on the day after Christmas, hence the name "Boxing Day".
