Bad Omens of Communications

Subtitle: Those who can't do, teach.

I'm working on a wacky grant proposal with the College of Education to get money to teach Python to high school teachers. The goal is that we'll teach them Python and then have them develop lessons plans on how they'd use Python in their classes. Behold an email conversation with the lead PI.

me: How much time are we spending in Week 1 teaching Python? I can't plan the Python lessons until I know how much time I'm expected to fill.

PI: We will be teaching Python in Week 1. Can you send me your NSF bio?

me: Here is the .tex file and the PDF.

PI: My computer cannot read this. I am not sure if this is how you saved it or
not but it came with .tex extension.
