Glider and general programming guides created by MalcolmHolt...thanks Malcolm!

Also, a big thanks to fnnwizard (Tuan) for all the assistance with the 8FG! I'd post his glider template here but it's not an allowed file type. I don't think he'd mind if I gave this file out so, if interested in getting a copy, send me a PM.
