[isf-wifidog] Additional screen shots for the Wiki

You make too many assumptions about what I will do if I start using 
WifiDog.  As part of the contract I'm working on I will have to make at 
minimum the following additions to WifiDog: 

1. An operating schedule for each node, to close access and display a 
closed access point message for those that attempt to connect.

2. Per user and per node bandwidth control.

All of which work I would definitely resubmit to the project.  It 
appears both of these features are on other people's radar also, but 
haven't made it to existing developer's priority yet.  But maybe they 
have and the documentation and ticket system hasn't been updated yet 

Letting the feature lists and documentation fall behind, doesn't do 
anyone any good.  It only makes potential new comers either look else 
where, because the project looks less mature than it really is, or 
generates questions on mailing list like this message that everyone gets 
tired of answering.  

I am a potential new user and contributor of the project, but don't see 
much value in setting up every hotspot project I can find just evaluate 
which one I really want to sink my teeth into.  If you haven't noticed 
from this posting, I'm a real believer in updating documentation when 
code gets updated especially when I contribute to a project.

Ok, I must sincerely salute your candor in this.

But surely you realize that you are essentially asking for other people 
spend their time making marketing material to help you land a paying 
contract, while:
-You seem unwilling to even invest the time to try the software (makes 
it look 
less likely that you will be willing to contribute time or anything else 
to the project in the future).
-Even our feature list isn't anywhere near up to date, and that is far 
important for marketing the project as a whole.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with you asking, but I doubt anyone 
will be 
tempted to do it.
