Looks like my last blog entry on it was a few years ago:

I dusted it off during my recent blitz of dumping unreleased code into 
PLaneT, and it's in the middle of implementing precision-sensitive 
arithmetic on its rich representations for time points and durations.  
It's in my work queue, but first I need to push my new embedded 
documentation library, and probably push my dusty URI library.  Plus 
there's the book, which right now seems more urgent than the time or URI 

Paying rent often delays things. :)
