I am a software engineer living in Atlanta, Georgia. I am looking forward to my Mi.Yodeya reputation exceeding my Stack Overflow reputation, because I think that will mean that I am no longer a nerd. My Mi.Yodeya reputation has finally exceeded my SO reputation! I'm not a nerd anymore.

comment Aninut on Shabbat
Do you mean to include yom tov as well? (considering your example doesn't involve Shabbat at all)

comment Entering / Davening in a Karaite synagogue
@Yishai I am quite certain that you are incorrect about that. Conservative responsa frequently cite the Talmud. Even if Conservative Judaism rejects the divine origin of the oral law (I don't know whether it does or not), they still accept its validity (and binding status at least to some extent) as a source of Jewish law.

comment Is there any way a pious jewish man can have many women legally and halacally?
Just because it hasn't been stated outright here yet, I will comment that having multiple wives is halachically impermissible at least for Ashkenazim.

comment Can someone [be] tovel accidentally? (Does tovelling need kavanah?)
Why is this different from the general machloket over whether mitzvot need kavanah?

comment How much aged cheese is needed in a cheese mix to require waiting 6 hours?
@IsaacKotlicky All the Kol Chamirah does is make it so that you don't own the chametz anymore. It doesn't help if you eat it. You can say Kol Chamirah all you want, but if one of those bread crumbs that you nullified falls into your food, it's still assur.

@IsaacKotlicky The OK is "outside the current orthodox praxis"? You need to back up your claim that bitul b'shishim only allows active nullification and doesn't cause nullification on its own. That's not how bitul b'shishim normally works and I don't know why I should think it's how it works in this case. Please show me a reference that if I were to purchase some milk after saying Kol Chamirah and before Pesach starts that it would be assur for me.

@IsaacKotlicky For a stronger reference than the one I cited above, see the OK

@IsaacKotlicky I believe you are incorrect about that. See here. Chametz before Pesach is not assur, but it is mevatel b'shishim.
