    I am not sure if these are published comments–but your videos are fantastic and I’d love to feature your work on our site.

    I’d love to discuss the possibilities.

    Thank you.

I was able with help from tech support to trace it back to this website.I am an aol member and did not understand that it was either them or you. I want to unsubscribe, in order to be able to view my email. Please help!! I have tried everything. thanks, Lynda

    Hi Lynda,

    Sorry you are having e-mail difficulties but I am sure that it has nothing to do with Changing Mail. Rest assured that Changing Mail is an innocent service with no malicious intent – Dan Zen has provided features to hundreds of thousands of visitors since 1995 without any difficulties. Changing Mail merely sends out an e-mail at your request. The e-mail has a graphic in it but this is not unusual.

    You have signed up but nothing will happen unless you do something. As far as I can tell, you have not sent a changing mail or subscribed to one or received one. If you have, can you please forward it to us at garden@danzen.com with changing mail as a subject. Thanks.

    Hey Dan,

    You may remember me from about 3 or 4 years ago from the McLuhan program. I’m a fellow there where my work and research focuses on utilizing biotechnology as a creative medium of design. Recently, I received a gov. grant to develop my own design studio project “anikolab”. My identity designer and I are in the process of creating a multimedia foundation. To this end, we are looking for an intern who has extensive knowledge and proficiency with: Flash 8, Actionscript 2, XML, Flash videoDreamweaver (would be nice), Fireworks, knowledge of Adobe CS2 is essential. This is a lead position on the development of the site. We are expanding development on an existing framework and will be working off an already highly developed source file. Any suggestions or ideas of anyone?

    Hope you remain happy and well and to hear from you soon, aniko

    I found your blog from your Flash Videomotion files. I am working on a Flash project in school, and would like to ask you some questions about the Videomotion code. Hope to hear from you.
    Sincerely, Sabrina K.

    Oops – Sabrina – sorry I am a little late in responding. Hopefully we got in touch via e-mail. Since that time, I have launched the VideoMotion code as Ostrich – part of the Flash Feathers open source advanced interface code at http://flashfeathers.com or http://ostrichflash.wordpress.com specifically for Ostrich.
