I am a senior in high school. I am experienced in programming in PostScript, and I enjoy creating random things that catch my interest. I have built a furnace for casting metal, I have my own ShopSmith (a ShopSmith is a combination table saw, drill press, lathe, disc sander, and horizontal boring machine), and I am very good with my hands. I play minecraft, and am a member of the Redstone Development Foundation, a group dedicated to creating contraptions and the like within minecraft.

comment What do you call unclean water that you can't see through?
For a noun, though, it doesn't have to be "murky water", just "murk" does fine.

comment Different way to refer to a 'lowercase' letter?
@JanusBahsJacquet I just edited my question; what I am looking for is a name for lowercase letters that is more directly complementary to "capital" or "initial".

comment Capital 'I' and lowercase 'L'
Don't forget the digit "1". Some fonts use the very same glyph for both lowercase "l" and the digit "1".

comment Is it proper grammar to refer to four digit number in hundreds?
"I wouldn't use it in official business documents" I wouldn't use either form in business documents, only the numeral form. The question only applies to the spoken form, not the written form.

comment Usage of 'AD' era designation
Listed like that, however, it would be more correct to use a colon. As in "June 13th 1981: Thatcher's plot ..." or "123 BC: the Klingonians ...", rather than using a comma.
