Favorite paper airplanes (and other flying diversions)?

Lately I've been making lots of paper airplanes in my free time (I'm a music student; we take lots of "practice breaks" and do a lot of sitting around in the hall). We have different contests -- usually for distance, but sometimes for time aloft. We also like throwing them out the window into the quad.
Anyway, we've done the standard dart
as well as this one
, which I learned a long time ago. But I'd love some other suggestions for designs that will help me beat my pals in competition.
I realize that it's hard to describe how to make a paper airplane -- I'm hoping people have resources to link to online, or just general tips and tricks that can be explained in text.
