my program doesn't show the half cone....

My c program should show me some white lines around the y-axis between X = 1 to X = -1.  But how come it doesn't show anything, but a black screen???

I got it!  Stupid me, I need to have the glVertex3f instead of glVertex3i....  Waste me an hour to figure this out....

Now I got a another question, how can I filp the cone and did my ortho function satiasifies for 3D ???  Because, when I run the program, it's still in 2D.

Thanks for suggestions.
