I might have done so, but the pandemic has increased my workload 
so much that my major decisions now involve deciding which parts 
of my job I can't do. Adding something else to the todo list is a 
pre-pandemic concept.

That said, I will be recording videos that involve the use of D, 
it's just that they'll be very specialized applications for my 
grad students rather than some of interest to a general audience.
