Sending in your tutorials

The tutorials you see here are made with Wink. Wink is a very nice and intuitive tool and best of all: it's free! So if you want to support the project feel free to send in a tutorial. For consistency, you should compile your tutorial with this theme-pack containing the preloader, buttons and the progress bar in pfSense-style. Just extract the archive in your Wink directory and select these files for your project.
