I wonder if the author of this program realizes he's the only one who uses these abbreviations for "sum of internal angles" and "sum of external angles", and that there's a good reason why?

I doubt that's a mistake.

Also, attempting to read the readme give the error "Failed to read file from within ZIP."

It looks like this ZIP uses a nonstandard compression method for the files. I can't read it, either. I normally reject files like that, but I wasn't the one who happened to process that particular file this time.

It uses LZMA, which the Windows unzipper can't handle either. Quite a few utilities have difficulty with anything other than Deflate or Store (the zip file handling code I wrote myself only supports those two compression methods as the vast majority of zip files in the wild use one or the other). Oh well, 7-Zip to the rescue!

Hehe, I just wanna say that 423 is my birthday and I think that is an excellent choice for a program name! I mean, what do you think I named my Sum of Exponents 6.9?

423? That's 42 and 23 merged.

Good timing bringing up the post because I have known recently some people who have a little obsession for 42, 23, 73, 69 and who knows more. One teacher when says an random number it has 50% of probability to say 73, odd...

Hehe, I enjoy the number 3116 for some reason and 776 is really bothering me because I know it has some meaning, I just cannot figure out what... I do like that my birth day is 23 April 1992 because it is 23/4/92 and 4*23=92 But now we I'm just getting off topic... Anywho, is anybody up for organizing a mass download of one specific quadratic solver on TICalc.org? Like as in getting it hundreds or thousands of downloads in one day? I like the idea...
