    I am applying for a fellowship that requires me to submit part of the application (my info/essay questions) as follows:

    "A one page typewritten description (ASCII disk or audiotape) identifying..."

    Sorry if I sound a little silly by asking, but...
    does that mean I can just submit a printed, typewritten paper? Or do I have to do things a little differently? I could do an audiotape BUT for this purpose I'd prefer writing so I can correct it (just got a term paper for my "how to be a teacher" class back today. It would've been 100 but for two spelling errors which I was busted for. Proof that teachers are human too? :rolleyes:)

    If it matters, I am using open office and/or documents to go for blackberry (open office if I can get ti done on my desktop tonight, docs to go if it doesn't).
    I have never heard of ASCII (and melyogi was rushing off somewhere so I couldn't ask her) and so I want to make sure before I send in this thing I do get to know what it is so I don't fubar my application.

    If it's simple and stupid, just tell me so I can laugh at myself for not knowing better.

    In the meantime I'll start typing what I need to type and if I need to convert, c'est la vie!

    Meanwhile, wish me luck (let's hope I get it)! :cool:
