RESOLVED: steel braided lines -- any trick to get fluid flowing?

Never mind.  What it needed was 5 more minutes of bleeding.  Suddenly it got a strong push and it was clean on the right side.  I shifted to the left and within 2 more minutes I had a firm pull ;-)  Now I'm leaving it at full brake pull overnight.

However, the basic bleeding procedure just doesn't appear to be working.  I've spent about half an hour and not getting anywhere.  If I pull off a bottom line and leave it hanging I can hear a squishing sound and eventually some drops of fluid will come out.  But it's just not appearing to pressurize the line.
