I've fallen slightly behind schedule-- I had hoped to have my SQL queries in Processing by now, but I'm still working on refining them in Sequel Pro. Once I have a full set of useful queries, bringing them into Processing will be very simple (the tricky thing after that is visualizing those queries ...
