GBW Serial Terminal - Update #3

In the middle box at the bottom, I've added a label "Enhanced Mode" which is visible when the terminal is in enhanced mode as triggered by the module. This means it will send our special tags for color etc.

I also added the "Module Time" label, which is updated by the module sending a tag with it's current time every second. In the past, I would have text displayed from the module that wasn't really informative, but it let me know it was still alive. Sometimes it can be 15 minutes before something actually happens, so this is my way of knowing the module is alive and functioning and not clogging up the display with meaningless messages.

The "Show Tags" checkbox is out of alignment, but that's ok, it's just temporary for testing...
