+ - How Do You Sort?

Submitted by camperdave
camperdave (969942) writes "I was recently going through a pile of receipts and other papers to put them into date order. Lacking one of those fancy sorting sticks they have at the office, I wound up with all sorts of piles and I was getting confused as to which pile was for what when it struck me: Why don't I use one of the many sorting algorithms I learned back in my computer science classes? So swept all the papers back into the box and did a radix sort on them. It worked like a charm. Since then, I've had occasion to try quicksorts and merge sorts.

So, when you have to physically sort things, what algorithm (if any) do you use?"
