in reply to poll ideas quest 2007

For discussing memory allocation schemes, the best metaphor is

  • hang-drying clothes
  • movie seating (considers cache locality issues)
  • parking
  • packing in a bag
  • packing in a cupboard
  • packing in a dishwasher

Please suggest other options to add before this goes up as a poll. Thanks.
