V188.8.131.52 10/12/2018 Set app to initialise as "always on top" - as it often is utilised in enterprise critical situations on multiple monitors. Add toggle back and front button.
V184.108.40.206 03/12/2018 Add feature to print LOG file to default printer. Update License/Legalese information.
V220.127.116.11 19/11/2018 Relocate LOG file to %appdata% local folder. Add "download latest version" information to LOG file entry.

V22.214.171.124 07/11/2018 Add License and general legalese information. Add navigation button to License information. Bug Fix: Replace Dialogue.Message with Dialogue.TimedMessage on alert for local internet failure, Dialogue.Message would repeat with numerous instances and therefore would require manually closing each instance. Timed Message now notifies user of local internet outage for 12 seconds, before allowing another 8 seconds idle time before again checking status. Increase size and visual quality of red and green alert status.
V126.96.36.199 01/11/2018 Increase size of LED counter. Various features under development and testing. Aesthetics only: add marbled greyscale background image. Change URL check and logging frequency from 10 minutes to 5 minutes.

V220.127.116.11 Bug fix: counter not resetting fully on outage by resuming previous total hourly tally after an hour's online resumption. Change counter font. Stop timer counter on outage, and reset to initialise monitoring again. Increase timer timeout to 20 seconds to allow sufficient "ping".
V18.104.22.168 Combine status log with uptime counter log. Sufficient with one shortened log entry per ten minutes.
