Call for BitMagic Movies

I received e-mail from a reader bewailing the demise of - whose Web Elegy exists elsewhere on this site. The reader claims to have a large library of BitMagic animations, and has graciously offered to help me view them, using an old player.

I am looking forward to helping unlock this lost genre of early Web animations, which were delivered via a proprietary player used in concert with e-mail during BitMagic's brief reign as a serious challenger to Shockwave. I cannot at this time know whether the BitMagic animations contain any gems, but am grateful to have a chance to inspect this lost archive. If you happen to run across any stray BitMagic movies on an old hard drive, please let me know - the long term plan is to build a complete filmography listing of BitMagic films.
