* Algorithms v. "The Real World" - One of the CodeRanch Staff met with some 'real world' resistance when using the algorithms he learned as a CS student and asks whether that's normal.

* Developing a queuing mechanism - The why, what, and how are thoroughly explored in this discussion about a creating a high throughput queue.
