It's amazing that I still remember my Slashdot password (after not using it for *years*), but when I see my comment attributed to "anonymous coward", I wonder why I bothered.

Hash table operations are probabilisticly O(1), degrading to O(N) in the worst case (many hash collisions).

Unmodified quick sort has expected complexity O(N log N), but worst case O(N**2), so if you pick your data carefully, you can get either solution to be O(N**2).
