Abstract: We prove that for any integer m (different from 0, +2, -2), there are infinitely many positive integers D for which the form x^2 - Dy^2 primitively represents m, -m, and -1. We do this by constructing an infinite sequence of such D's associated with each m.
Also, when m is odd, we relate the existence of additional such D's to well-known conjectures.
