2001. Not sure if I didn't understand it or if it's truly on drugs. On the other hand, bleeding edge special effects for the time, I guess.

Wat. Wait, wat.
node.js implements stat(2) by representing inode numbers as floats. That leads to errors. http://blog.koehntopp.info/index.php/1496-node-js-idea-of-an-inode-is-approximately-broken/

Turns out there's a tool in Windows 10 now (as of 1703) that allows to convert a disk from MBR to GPT, especially to allow to switch from legacy boot to UEFI (and SecureBoot) in the process: MBR2GPT. Given that MS doesn't want to require a reinstallation anymore with all the in-place upgrading, it makes sense in the big picture. Now it'd have been useful to have a similar tool on Linux as well, but I guess the configuration space is too vast to do that reliably... :/

Little known Debian time saver: "sudo apt build-dep ./" installs the build dependencies your package to be built needs. No more dpkg-checkbuilddeps, stripping version constraints and passing that to apt.

Es ist beeindruckend, wenn man plötzlich feststellt, wie politisch Fernsehserien wie Alfred J. Kwak waren. Der deutsche Wikipedia-Artikel (https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alfred_J._Kwak) spricht das nicht an, der englische (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alfred_J._Kwak) schon.

Es gibt Kritik an Rassismus und Apartheid, es gibt einen abstoßenden Hitler (Kra), es gibt die herrschende Elite, die die Natur zerstören wollen, um einen Freizeitpark zu bauen, einen Übergang von einer Monarchie zu einer Demokratie inklusive flammender Rede warum die Wähler keine Nazis wählen dürfen... Alles Zeug, was üblicherweise nicht in einer Kindersendung zu finden ist.

Jemand hat das ganze auch auf YouTube hochgeladen: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZX-7XvII318&list=PL83EB11DD1D5EF206

Bildungsfernsehen, Anno 1989/1990?

Of course this is somewhat working as designed. You abstract away the population using representative democracy. Ultimately it is also unclear if having elected a senator means agreeing with his voting behavior years later. But then I guess the next election might ultimately realign them with the people and mostly lifetime appointments and people screwed up in the meantime are problematic.
