Thanks, the first thing that gives me a pleasant
feeling in all this: I had forgotten about the module

Corporation-independent Public Broadcasting is the best innovation
since someone said, that the volcano would erupt anyway or not, no

Unternehmensunabhängiger Öffentlich-rechtlicher Rundfunk ist
die beste Innovation, seit jemand sagte, dass der Vulkan eh
