One of the most distinctive features of the M310 Workstation is the 16character blueonblue liquid crystal display LCD panel mounted at a 45degree angle on the front of the system unit. One reason it's at that angleaside from aestheticsis that it can be read equally well or poorly with the system unit mounted in a vertical position. Normally, the LCD panel displays the time of day and the current processor speed setting 8 or 12.5MHz see DOStips. The last character position is used as a disk drive access indicator, so you will see letters appearing there C when it accesses the hard disk, A when it accesses a diskette in drive A, etc. In addition, Wyse has provided a special DOS command, LCDPANEL, which allows you to control the LCD panel. Let's look at some of the options LCDPANEL provides.
