Best Nodes of the Day, Week, Month, and Year

Are they really the best nodes? Maybe, maybe not. You be the judge!

By the way — Please don't upvote these nodes just because other monks thought they were good. If you do, their node reputations will increase — but then we won't really be showcasing the best nodes.
