Forks handle up or down, knives up, down or staggered in both directions, plastic cups bottom rack or top?  How does one load a dishwasher properly?

I found a couple of videos that will not only teach you how to load a dishwasher properly, but give you tips on water temperature, plastic placement and what part your garbage disposal plays in the workings of your dishwasher.
