"Sorting algorithms are an essential chapter in undergraduate computer science education. Due to their easy to explain nature and fairly straight-forward analysis, this set of algorithms offers a convenient introduction to the methods and techniques of theoretical computer science and algorithm analysis.
"This web page presents my own demo program for sortings algorithms, called "The Sound of Sorting", which both visualizes the algorithms internals and their operations, and generates sound effects from the values being compared. See below for YouTube videos created with the demo…."

The following represents my suggestion of what order to watch episodes of the new Doctor Who and its spin-offs, Torchwood and The Sarah Jane Adventures, to keep the events of each show roughly synchronized for the sake of their occasional crossovers. This version is current through the 50th anniversary special in November 2013.
Some introductory notes:
1. Doctor Who as a television show ran from 1963 to 1989, with a follow-up feature film released in 1996. Some people like to watch some or all of the earlier material before beginning with the “rebooted” show that began in 2005. This list is focused only on the modern, rebooted version of the show and its spin-offs, although if you are interested in my recommendations for which pre-2005 stories to watch first, you can find that list here.
2. Doctor Who is often billed as a show for the whole family, whereas Torchwood is explicitly aimed at more mature audiences and The Sarah Jane Adventures is geared towards children. Though they share a common continuity, and although events and characters occasionally cross over between shows, they are tonally quite distinct.
3. This list includes all full episodes in the New Whoniverse, as well as certain supplementary materials such as mini-episodes that I feel represent a meaningful addition to the canon. Quotation marks appear around the titles of the latter, to distinguish them from full episodes on this list.
4. There are other non-episode features that I do not consider of central importance that have been omitted from this list.
5. When possible, I have grouped episodes of the same show in blocks together, to limit the sometimes jarring transitions that can arise when switching from one program to another. However, I have also tried to space the shows out so that their seasons are still running roughly parallel with one another. Hopefully, a good balance has been struck in that regard, and an effort has been made to not switch between the shows during major story arcs.
6. The show The Sarah Jane Adventures ties in with the main show’s continuity less frequently than Torchwood does. As such, those episodes have been placed mostly where they seem to fit thematically, in addition to necessary plot reasons.
7. The Sarah Jane Adventures ended in 2011, after the death of its lead actress, Elisabeth Sladen. Torchwood aired its most recent episode in 2011 as well, but it or some other spin-off may yet air future episodes.
The order is as follows:
I am pretty sure there has never been an episode of a show with more people playing the same character in the history of television.
this pleases me greatly
I love how Tom is listed as The Doctor and not The Curator, or even The Doctor/ Curator
