@DoubleAA never thought about that.

@DoubleAA I've never seen a community that duchans which doesn't have that custom :) After kedusha, there's often an announcement made like, "Kohanim and Leviim, please prepare for duchaning."

I thought once you started any given part of the service with a minyan, you continue as if there is a minyan. E.g., Torah reading, Barchu, etc.

comment Concerning the time when Esther must be read
"An the addition is not strange see Rashi." - what do you mean by that? The addition is not in Rashi, but in your translation.

comment Concerning the time when Esther must be read
Rashi says, "לא פחות ולא יותר - לא פחות מי"א ולא יותר מט"ו"... not that it wasn't obvious. And I agree with what's implied by @Scimonster - the "sometimes" is a strange addition to the translation.

@user6641 I doubt you'll find anyone who considers our task to already be a closed book.

I don't really understand the question. Is Sirius a failure in comparison to the Sun because we're further from it? Is it a failure of a star in and of itself?

comment Heter to own Sefarim
After reading this through a few times, I found the question you're asking, but it's far from clear. I think you're asking what the person means by "the heter to own sefarim." If you can figure out a way to ask that without a back story, it would be easier to answer (and not to get off-topic answers like the one so far).
