Majority of Walmart.com items showing pickup and 2-day shipping available on the outer page, showing pick up only when clicking and loading the product page.

It's definitely annoying
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Because the ת in בִּגְתָן doesn't get a דגש.

However the only reason ת in וָתֶרֶשׁ has no דגש is because it is preceded by a ו, just like the ב in וּבִנְיָמִֽן loses its דגש because of the ו which comes in front it the name Binyomin. בגדכפת in the beginning syllable or a word (as long as the preceding word doesn't end with an open syllable which connects to the word starting with בגדכפת) will get a דגש.
I wholeheartedly agree with you, and frankly, I'm a bit embarrassed that I didn't catch that myself. I like to think that I know my fair share of Dikduk, I'll be taking a refresher now...

FWIW I originally didn't realize you were coming from a Dikduk POV I thought it was just being pedantic

Yet if shipping to NJ it'll allow shipping.

FWIW sometimes if you come back an hour or a few days later, it's magically available to ship

Yes almost always the case, talking of items I'm getting delivered regularly.

We are using the hebrew pronunciation anyhow. How was Achashverosh pronounced in Persian? Was it closer to the English Cyres?

Here's some info about some other names in the Megillah:

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

Run the knots under cold water and pull tight, especially right when you get them.

Yep, I learned this trick a couple of years ago, and that's the first thing I do when I get them, works like a charm

Burn the end.
Halachik and other issues aside, the strings are made from wool, there is no plastic to melt.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Actually I’ve done this before on my strings not knots.
When the strings start to fray, you tie a knot right above where it’s frayed and you can burn the frayed part

Or cut off the fray part (with a ceramic scissor if you're makpid) and dip the tip in glue.
