Impeach Bush French Fries
[I saw this in a restaurant window when I was in Santa Cruz -- anyone know what this is about (i.e. what's the group, or is it a joke)?]

I saw a reference to it a while back, just after the 'freedom fry' hit the fan. Looks like they raised the percentage from 5% to 10%. I'm not sure which group gets the profits, but there is votetoimpeach.org , which is my guess.
You'd have to ask the Saturn Cafe folks where the 10% goes to as I don't remember. They're tasty though [same fries they had before, just with a new name now]. Good food overall.
I think they have some stickers too [$.50 with proceeds also going towards the impeach stuff].
Let's see an example by converting our favoriteNumber variable from a stack variable to a heap variable. The first thing we'll do is find the project we've been working on and open it up in Project Builder. In the file, we'll start right at the top and work our way down. Under the line:
The Stack is just what it sounds like: a tower of things that starts at the bottom and builds upward as it goes. In our case, the things in the stack are called "Stack Frames" or just "frames". We start with one stack frame at the very bottom, and we build up from there.
When compared to the Stack, the Heap is a simple thing to understand. All the memory that's left over is "in the Heap" (excepting some special cases and some reserve). There is little structure, but in return for this freedom of movement you must create and destroy any boundaries you need. And it is always possible that the heap might simply not have enough space for you.
