Is there a reason I shouldn't use dry-erase markers on my full-length mirror? Because I just did, and I got more plotting done in about ten minutes than in hours of trying to do it on paper.

I think that's a standard for scientists and computer programmers, dunno about other fields, but I've seen my friends in that stuff fill entire mirrors and windows with scribbles. One even added his own whiteboard here in the dorms so as to have more working area.

I bought a glass computer table just for the reason of writing on it with dry erase markers. If I run out of the apartment and I need to let my roomate know something, I write the message on the bathroom mirror b/c I know she will see it there.

Yes. Doing so violates the EULA on your mirror. The manufacturer's lawyers will be getting in touch with you soon. >_>;;

I went out and picked up a 36x48 whiteboard for that purpose. I didn't know dryerase makers worked on glass windows. (I'd suspected you had to use something else as the drawing substance, but its name excapes me at the moment.)

How well do they work?

Pretty well, it seems, although it's sometimes difficult to see the markings on a patch of mirror that happens to be reflecting a similar color.

(Unfortunately, I have no wallspace in my room for a real whiteboard. Besides, the mirror has a certain A Beautiful Mind factor to it...)

Understandable, low contrast is.

A Beautiful Mind is one of the things I pointed at and said "nah, it can't be that simple" before buying a whiteboard..
