To e-mail Alan:
- Questions by e-mail are welcome, but few assignments are accepted by
e-mail. DO NOT e-mail me assignments without permission, or unless specified.
- Open your e-mail account and prepare a new message addressed to the
address given out in class.
- You correctly must fill in the subject heading box with an abbreviated
description of what you are sending. If it is blank or sounds like junk
mail, it may be deleted.
- You must sign your name and tell me which class you're in within
the text of the message.
- Never type more than a short note directly into e-mail. Type your assignment
in a word processor. Then, highlight the entire document and copy &
paste it directly into the e-mail message.
- You can also "attach" most documents to e-mail provided the
file is not too large (DO NOT try to e-mail me many maps or pictures at
once). I may not have the program on my computer to open your attachment,
so to be sure - ALWAYS highlight the entire document and copy & paste
it directly into the e-mail message along with the attachment.
- Hint: Saving your word processing document in "Rich Text Format"
(.rtf) before attaching it makes it much easier to open and reduces the
risk of viruses.
To Submit Assignments on Disc:
If you submit assignments on disk - be sure to keep a copy! Please write
'Mac' or 'PC' on the disc label, along with the program format(s) that your
assignment was written in (i.e.Word 6.0, Wordperfect 3.5). Don't hand in
a disc with other documents that aren't backed up or that you need right
To Submit Assignments on Dead Trees*
Let's try to save *paper and the environment by always:
printing on both sides whenever possible
reducing the font and margin sizes
single spacing (I'm not blind yet)
double check the document before you execute the print job
print it out on the back of misprints (strike out the side you don't
want me to read)
print out on high recycled content, non-chlorine bleached paper
print out on hemp paper or other sustainable fiber sources
Avoid the dreaded "PRESERVE" stamp on your assignment.
