comment Etiquette when answering questions from less math-oriented users
@AsafKaragila I don't recall ever disagreeing with a position you have taken, including in this situation, it's just that I don't think you have made yourself look very good. If it's too frustrating to deal with a student, my advice is just leave them alone and let them work things out without your help.

comment Is it bad practice to make up my own html attributes?
Thx for the reply, but I just was wondering why its ok to use data-XXX and not just make up my own attributes. Is it just a convention, or will this break cross-browser-compatibility or something like that?

comment Cauchy's Integral Formula
@edna1974: There is more than one way to do this integral, and my solution does use Cauchy's integral formula. I figured you weren't allowed to use it, but I went with a hyper literal interpretation of your question. What your teacher meant was ONLY using the Cauchy Integral formula and NOT the residue theorem :) I could try explaining the residue theorem in 250 characters or less, but that would be a disaster. If you skip ahead in your textbook, there should be an explanation.
