Recently I overhauled the website for The Rice Inversion Project. It was fun learning a bit of CSS, but I know there is much room for improvement. If you have any comments or suggestions, please let me know.

Pstricks is a great illustration tool for LaTeX. To the right is an a picture of a three dimensional domain I did for a vector analysis class using pst-3dplot. Here's the LaTeX code for it. It's surprisingly simple to do this. If you want to try it yourself, you need the pstricks package, the pst-3dplot package, and also the xkeyval and xcolor packages. If you do LaTeX, I strongly suggest you try to make your diagrams in pstricks.
