comment How did the Ashkenazi Yom Tov “prayer mode” become so popular?
1) I don't know about other communities, but I've always heard the tunes referred to as "nusach" which isn't really helpful here since it's easily confused. 2) I've wondered about the "amein problem" myself before, and I think it'd be great as its own question (if it doesn't already exist.)

I meant in the Chayei Olam! I'm not sure I want to get involved with modern sorcerers, just yet. :D

comment Did Esther eat at the first feast she made for the king and Haman?
By the way, Rashi to Megilah 16a (ולתעניתו) says that the "third day" is from when the decree was dispatched, the 13th of Nissan. Hence, though the fast was from 14th-16th (Rashi 15a, "יו"ט ראשון של פסח"), Esther went to the king and made the first feast on the 15th. That means that her 2nd feast was on the 16th, and would also have been during the fast. There are other opinions, like the Midrash Rabba, that hold that the fast was 13th-15th.
