I mostly work with Novell/NetIQ Identity Manager, an XML based product that use XSLT, XPATH, and DirXML Script (its own XML based language).

I have written a book on the topic of the DirXML Script language.

You forgot about Apricot computers! Also from a tree. (Apple II days clone).

comment Why do we say “Ve'Atah Kadosh”?
@DoubleAA What about V'Yichulu on Shabbos? While it is technically a repetition of Shoma Esre, it is still an extra component.

Clever, but I admit, not making me laugh. So far seems like parody which is ok I suppose.

comment Prayer in a chapel (bes midrash room) vs. in the main synagogue
The Fashion District shul in Manhattan is a nice example. For Yom Tov they actually have a large sanctuary, but for weekday they get just barely a minyan, so they use the small bais medrash. (7th and 40th st, north west corner). Conservative too I think.

comment What can a Menorah be made of?
Chabad on 5th Ave in Manhattan often has an ice menorah outside their building. But no one is yotzei with that one, but it does look pretty.

comment Are magazine subscriptions ribbis?
Are you suggesting the regular price is Ribbis, or the discounted price? Since it seems the discounted price is the opposite of Ribbis.

comment When and why did the black velvet yarmulke become the standard for some communities?
@avi Excellent points. Also why I wanted larger ones. But my experience with larger knit kippahs is that the thread is much thicker and thus much less effort to make larger.

comment Why do we step before Shemona Esrei?
Maybe if I add Kaviyachol? Would that make it better. I had wondered as well why the downvotes.
