Is Hungarian Notation still useful?
Not really, especially with IDEs that give you all the information related to an identifier for you. In any case, though, you probably should be giving your variables names that describe their purpose anyway so it isn't a surprise when a variable like "name" turns out to be a string.
I just find the api names of OpenGL are really amazing. You can easilly see the parameters type and this..glColor3d ..look..3 parameters and types are double..really amazing ..!
OpenGL really only does that because it's a C lib and therefore does not have any function overloading.

Also, glColor3d is deprecated.
