revised What are the general rules regarding doing activities (such as eating or checking email) before mitzvot (such as tefillin or prayer)?
It's not clear to me that paid computer consulting is always a mitzvah. Intent probably matters. See page 27 of _An Offer You Can't Refuse_ by Rabbi Yissocher Frand.

comment Is it permissible to use an escalator on Shabbos?
@DannySchoemann Jamezrp just joined Mi Yodeya today. I think he's saying that most escalators in the US are found in malls, but that hanging out in malls goes against the spirit of Shabbos, so you should be careful not to hang out in malls during Shabbos. Are things less unclear now? :)

comment can one commit aveiros after he is dead?
Jamezrp, welcome to Mi Yodeya. I hope you'll like the place and decide to stay. Before you post an answer, please read over it several times and make sure it's as clear as possible to the maximum possible number of readers. (The first sentence could use some work.) Still, thanks very much for the thoughtful answer!

@IsaacMoses: I dunno. He's the rosh yeshiva of Yeshivat Dvar Yerushalayim, a baal teshuva yeshiva in Har Nof. Are roshei yeshiva of such yeshivot normally poskim?
