A qualified chemist who somehow drifted into web development. I've learned (to a greater or lesser degree of accuracy) PHP and JavaScript, and would like to learn something completely different for the sake of it. I'm a weirdo who actually enjoys reading (and sometimes writing) technical documentation.

Tidied grammar (American usage of /gotten/ preserved).

revised Can we argue with gedolim when we are sure that we are right?
their, there. "Ultimately ... also" read oddly to me, as if the sentence was leading up to saying that the authority of the posek was the *deciding* factor, but then pulled back from that. I left the two factors equal. (There are times I'm glad my edits are only suggestions.)

revised Christmas and Ex-mas
This started as a simple correction of "chi" to "chi rho" as the symbol. It sort of got out of hand and perhaps is a bit too much.

Tidied grammar slightly. Very small changes really, but I think the brackets and the paragraph break improve readability.
