Heaps and Lists and Leaks

If you ever decide it'd be a good idea to implement your own memory heap system for whatever reason, make sure you do it correctly, which includes combining multiple small neighboring blocks into a single larger block at least occasionally if you allow blocks to be split. Also, while a linked list is a convenient way to store a 'free list', it's going to end up quite slow if there is a single unordered list that you search for every call to 'MyAlloc' and 'MyFree' (especially if you don't combine blocks but do split them).

Reverse engineering is quite eye-opening =-/
