#18 ftw
"drop me a line"
2. things must be dire in here as a thread which should consist as "question/answer/thank you very much" has developed into a multi-duel of helpers, demonstrating savagely their in depth knowledge into the solution of quadratics, showing off their amazing LaTeX skills.
3. bear™ is able to find the roots using his secret "intersection of virtual conics" method. he can tell you but he would have to kill you.
