UPDATE!

I've successfully implemented true type fonts into my png library.  I was going to get fancy and try to make it so I can make slanted fonts and what not but could not get that to work but I got right to left and top to bottom working and that's good enough for me.

I was going to write a generic graphing library but then I started thinking, each particular scenario where I may want to make a graph will change, so it's easier to just write the code for the specific purpose instead of trying to make a one class fits all deal.

So I am now going to rewrite the existing graphic code of the poller to use my new png library.  If all goes well I should be able to run this through some testing for a bit then release it.

ETA is mid March, for now, assuming I don't run into issues.

Later on I may enhance the graphs, but for now the goal will be to just get them working how they were before.

Graphs are now working!

Added some minor enhancement like time stamp, which is kinda important considering there was no X axis indication of time.  Enhanced them graphic wise as well.  May enhance them even more in the future but they'll do for now.

This is still considered testing phase but I think it will be good as I did lot of testing.

There is a random crash issue I need to figure out, this was happening even before I added graph support and I have a general idea what is crashing, just need to debug it further and find out the root cause.  I get an alert on my phone when it goes down and often if I'm at a computer I just reset it and it's barely noticeable.  I could probably automate that but it's better to actually fix it. :P I'll get on that.
