The alias should be short and only contain letters, i.e. self.alias = "mtt"

comment Why is the Dissolve Tool not working?
If you have more than 4GB RAM you may also benefit by install x64 background processing (available from 10.1 and later) and enabling background processing in the geoprocessing options. Another tweak is to set the ARCTMPDIR environment variable to point to a writable folder (ie C:\TEMP) before starting ArcMap. (This fixes a known issue that can come up when running any tool that does topological overlay, DIssolve included.)

comment Topology or out of memory errors with large dataset intersects and spatial joins in ArcGIS
I'm having an issue with a large Dissolve intermittently failing; maybe this is a workaround - make the dataset less complex. Is there a bug number we can reference? In my experience that's the best way to get things from the depths of Redlands.

Field calculator operates on a row at a time, but your sort involves looking at all table rows. Why do you want to do this in Field Calculator? If in ModelBuilder, the tool you want is Calculate Value.
