comment Taking a pill together with a food
It sounds like the Kitzur's case here is only post-facto - when you've realized that you need another substance. This is opposed to Rambam's a priori principal that if you take some flavoring to make medicine more palatable, the medicine is the ikar and bitter and no bracha is needed.

comment Why did Yitchak not follow in Avraham's footsteps regarding hospitality
I remember hearing that Lot's hospitality to the angels in the story of Sdom is mentioned somewhere as unexceptional because he was raised by Abraham. I wonder if that is similarly mentioned regarding Yitzhak or if you can apply the same logic.

comment Ancient Texts Claiming that G-d is Perfect
I think list questions are not a great fit for this site. The list you're looking for, in particular, is quite long (My first thought was Tehillim 92).

comment Is “Yarden” a Hebrew name that was used?
You mean aside from the last 35 years? Because I definitely know some in that group.

comment Why are there four types of execution?
Four is often related to exile. Maybe some source has mentioned this connection?

@Menachem So what if this is a wild squirrel that comes to visit on shabbas and makes you a pot of coffee?

comment G-d's name on screen readers
@tryingToGetProgrammingStraight Perhaps a better but less specific version of this question is: What methods of pronouncing the Tetragrammaton are forbidden? Can I listen to a live radio show where It is being said? Can I cause a machine to make Those Sounds? Can I cause a non-Jew to speak It? Can I audiate It?

comment G-d's name on screen readers
@tryingToGetProgrammingStraight not that I know of. As I said, "no problems whatsoever" is a perfectly fine answer (and the answer I'd expect)

comment G-d's name on screen readers
@msh210 An answer that brings sources that say there's no issue whatsoever because there's no problems pronouncing the Tetragrammaton would be a fine answer.
