comment Get 100 highest numbers from an infinite list
@hamstergene - but in the case of this question, is N the size of the sorted list, or the number of items that have been processed thus far? If you process 10000 items, and keep the top 100 items in a list, or you process 1000000000 items, and keep the top 100 items in a sorted list, the insertion costs in that list remain the same.

comment JavaScript - Why do frameworks bind to $()
jQuery has the noConflict method, to allow you to avoid conflicts over $ when using multiple frameworks. Not sure whether other frameworks have similar functions.
