Things are coming along slowly but surely.  Patience.

I recorded a "tour" of Xerblin the night before last, and I'm writing a
transcription. I'm about 1/3 of the way through.  It's very rough, and I
was speaking quietly to avoid disturbing the chickens, and I mumble and
talk under my breath in a few places.  But it shows the basic
functionality of the Xerblin UI and Joy interpreter.  It's a solid
foundation on which to build.  Once I've completed the transcript I can
use it to write something like a script for a new video that's tighter
and easier to understand.

At some point soon I'm going to switch to it as my main UI (for
everything, in lieu of a "desktop" metaphor, in other words, as if it was
the computer UI, not X Windows (although of course I'm still using it,
this is just a demo)), on the principle of "eat your own dog food".
