    There's also this:
    http://linux.wku.edu/~lamonml/algor/sort/sort.html

    Which discusses 7 algorithms in some interesting detail
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    Actually I was skimming through the revised Eternally Confuzzled website (didn't know it was revised. Nice work Prelude and Team!) and Prelude's approach is much more comprehensive despite her claims at the end.
