I'm getting the feeling that the time limit won't be much of an issue
tonight. :)

My topic is "How to find the median in O(n) time".  I'm probably over
5 minutes, too.  If people are interested, I can do a followup to that
on "choosing a good pivot".  That will probably take about 15 minutes,
and will need a white board.  Neither of these talks have very much to
do with Perl, though they are both quite clever algorithms.
