I haven't actually seen the code from that, but I'm guessing that if you
look at the code, you'll probably see that there should be a command at the
end of a function to change the color's a psuedo-code example
(cause I don't know what the real variables/function names actually are):

void changeColor(variable newColor)
    variable color;
    color = currentColor;
    currentColor = newColor;
    // Insert the displayed text here
    currentColor = color;

The first two statement and the last statement are probably the kind of
things that were left out of easyColor....please let me know if I'm
