Let P=d/\r. With P_0 on r as center draw a circle C
tangent to d. Let P_1 be the contact point.
Draw s=(P,F) and let F_1 and F_2 be the intersections
between <s> and <C>. Draw t=(P_0,F_1) and u=(P_0,F_2).
Draw from <F> t'||t and u'||u. The intersections O=r/\t'
and O'=r/\u' are the intersections of <r> and the parabola.
Your solution seems nice but I still have to
