    Well, I apologize, I do answer all emails I receive but I have to get it before I can answer. I got 5 of them just today from the screencast. I searched for your handle in my email and could not find anything (except the notice for this comment) Which email did you use? and how long ago? Maybe it was flagged as Spam. use this email:
    conticreative @ (and then add the google mail service at the end).
