Yes, it showed me that JQuery/Javascript development is tedious, not 
just for me.

At first, the real time typing/thinking felt slow, but later I thought 
it was worthwhile to see how others actually accomplish the coding task 
(which you cannot see in a text tutorial).

I had started on a HelloWorld template, just to avoid the same head 
smacking moment when you realize you forgot to include the JQuery 
libraries. (Aside - adding the JQueryMobile library automatically brings 
in the JQuery library, as noted in the video. When I had JQuery included 
twice, once on it's own, and again through JQueryMobile, I had a weird 
bold/shadow on everything).

There were a few times when I thought you could have pushed the "New 
Session" button on the Seaside toolbar, instead of editing the URL. But 
with JQueryMobile, the Seaside toolbar is not available, so I realized 
it might be a better approach, given muscle memory. BTW, is there a 
technical reason why the Seaside toolbar is not available.

Lastly, I learned about the JQM decorations that are available.

Great work!
