Modeling coordinates
I chose the coordinates specified for Assignment 3 (-2 < {x, y, z} < 2) because they're relatively simple, as modeling coordinates go, but they're pretty much arbitrary -- feel free to replace them with a more convenient modeling coordinate system of your choice.

gluCylinder
John Kim points out that you can draw Assignment 3's pyramid using gluCylinder by specifying a topRadius of 0 and only drawing 4 slices.

I kinda wish I'd thought of this; it's much better than the Toblerone bar example I used in class.

SIGINT
For those of you who are interested in spy-stuff, I recommend the new book Chatter: Dispatches from the Secret World of Global Eavesdropping by Patrick Radden Keefe.

To quote Scott McNealy (CEO of Sun Microsystems): "You already have no privacy. Get over it."
