Techniques for making pie crust by hand?

My dilemma came up with the food processor post a few months ago, and it still exists. I just don't have a food processor and every modern pie crust recipe calls for it. So, how do I make a good pie crust by hand? Any techniques and tips are appreciated. I made one before and it turned out okay, but I'm looking to refine.
