comment How to decode Google's proprietary latLon format for China?
At first glance, it looks like a lat, lng in decimal degrees (35.1221317, 135.74191160)...not sure if it's actually that simple. A brief search didn't turn up any documentation on this so I'm just posting a comment...maybe someone else with have more concrete insight.

@whuber: Can't say I'm surprised...you'll save yourself some time and headaches by making sure all your data used in various analyses is in the same coordinate system.

Best practice would be to make sure all your inputs for intersect, union, etc. are in the same coordinate system but ArcGIS will transform them on the fly.

comment datum conflict when creating buffer in arcgis 10
ArcGIS automatically reprojects data on the fly so that they can be displayed in the same coordinate system. The underlying data isn't actually transformed.

@Seth: no, ArcBruTile isn't a service provider, it is a client that consumes various services.

@Kirk: maybe, but you would need to check all logfiles...the log file will roll over once it hits a specific size.

comment How do you create 9.3 version of a geodatabase in ArcMap 10?
Good call. If you've got old GDBs on hand, this is probably the easier solution. I remember James' old blog post but didn't realize he's still updating it.

comment Is there a way to update the attribute table of a feature class with a query?
How was this data created? Data created with Esri tools shouldn't produce features with an area < 0.
