I'd like a list of the most important, basic, essential programming algorithms.

By basic, I sort of mean useful in the workplace and real life. For example, sorting. But not
reproducing the Fibonacci series.
is a really great thread, but I'd like a list that's been narrowed down to a top-twenty or so. This question might provoke debate, which is fine. But I'm really just looking for a list of common programming tasks, plain and simple.
Reason? I'm just starting to learn programming and I'd like to know what topics to pay special attention to and be able to solve some common problems in different languages. Plus - curiosity.
