I should have logged it eh? I would say the research on Mandelbrots was 
definitely the hardest part; that took me a few hours and I actually walked 
through the "How to Draw a Mandelbrot by Hand" wikiHow article. That was 
spread over a couple days. Finding the George Taylor article really gave me 
a leg up on coding the routine, and I would say I probably put an hour or so 
into actually building the stack, altogether, getting the basic plotting 
done. Then another 30 minutes getting the zoom function to work the way I 
wanted to and tweaking its layout.

If you notice, the code in my uploaded stack varies a bit from what I 
posted, and runs slightly faster. Since then I've been really thinking about 
how to further speed up the rendering and how to best to handle the 
colorization part.

I'm really glad you liked the post and stack; it's fun to play with.
