I found this link somehow and decided to post it for all to read:
Sorting and Searching Algorithms
The front page has a java applet on it that sorts a list of bars. If you click each one once real quick, you can sit back and see who wins everytime. It would be cool to show each algorithm like this to see how they perform. Anyway, it kept me busy reading and learning for over a half hour and I wanted to have a reference for later retrieval.
Enjoy... if you so choose to indulge. :P
