I gave a math talk at the ANU (Australian National University) on 
October 28 and I will be giving it to the math dept. in the spring.  
The talk consists (mostly) of figures created with xfig and 
exported as combined PS/Latex figures from xfig.  If anyone 
wants to hear the talk or discuss using xfig and latex to give 
a "scientific" talk, I am willing to speak.  
By the way, the "presentation" technology in the WSU math. 
dept. is much more abundant  and somewhat more advanced 
than was apparent at the math dept. at ANU.  When you 
consider that ANU is rated as one of the top 50 universities in 
the world, it makes one wonder.  "Everyone" at ANU math used 
Macs.  (The thin client Sun network also exists.  I used a WSU 
math Centrino laptop, set up a static IP, plugged in the ethernet 
cable and avoided their netwok.  ANU has no firewall or filtering.)
