comment GIS projects with a raspberry pi
Note the R-pi runs on an ARM processor (think the same technology that your mobile phone uses). This may limit what "GIS" type of applications you could run on it (if thats what you want to do). I used a Rpi + GPS + 3G phone to act as a sort of tracker. I captured points and pushed them back to ArcGIS Online. So in terms of the Pi being a sensor, theres lots of potential. But like Paul said, very broad question. If you could give some focus or possible direction to your question maybe it will spurn ideas.

comment Changing default parser in ArcGIS Field Calculator to Python?
You're correct with the backwards compatibility reasons... Just a note though, in ArcGIS Pro, Python will be the only parser option.

comment Where can I find in depth documentation on modifying arcgis stylesheets?
Because thats how that parameter (extent) appears on the dialog.

comment Creating tile packages (.tpk files) in ArcGIS for Desktop using multiple cores?
This tool only uses 1 core. No way to make it use multiple cores.

comment arcgis server performance comparison
To each their own, I personally wouldn't use a source that left questions on the methodology. But it is what it is, an analysis done by a student a few years ago. Hopefully someone has more recent, and quantitative results to share with you.

comment arcgis server performance comparison
Not to mention they were evaluating ArcGIS Server 10.0. Server has gone from 32 to 64bit plus countless other improvements at 10.1 and beyond.

comment arcgis server performance comparison
I cant answer your question, but I'm a little blown away by someone producing charts showing "speed", then making a note paragraphs further on saying the hardware wasn't identical for each test and test results might be different if the same hardware was used.

comment Sample FindNearest ArcGIS REST URL
Whats your client, javascript or another web-api or something like Python? All the information to submit a request is there, the "sample" is going to be different based on the client/app.

comment GPservice cannot connect to sde
Between 10.0 and 10.1 the publishing process was changed. 10.1 onwards copies everything the service will need over to that directory. Without having your complete workflow or seeing the data, I can't say why exactly it isn't working. But the g_ESRI variable is what it is suppose to do and sounds correct based on what you posted, just as long as the .SDE connection file is actually there.

comment After SDE Conversion, cannot open our GP Services to republish them
Are you saying the "Service Editor", the window/wizard to publish a service doesn't open? If thats the case, in ArcMap, goto Customize >ArcMap options and on the sharing tab you'll see a "staging path". Go to that directory and delete everything there. Then after restarting ArcMap, try publishing again from a NEW result (fresh tool execution).

comment Geocoding in 64 bits - background geoprocessing
Are you sure? You should be looking for a RuntimeLocalServer.exe process. There will be 2, one will be bigger than the other. This is the 64bit BG process running your tool. [in addition to the check you have no dialog locking out ArcCatalog as this disappears when running in BG]

comment Geocoding in 64 bits - background geoprocessing
Did you uncheck the box on the model properties (general page) of "always run in foreground"? If you haven't unchecked that, the model will not run in the background.

comment Running x64 bit geoprocessing Python in Python IDLE 2.7.6 x64 error
If SPSS can use ArcGIS 64bit BG install, why not use that? You're done: because its already setup and ready to go. If you're rolling your own python, the numpy and matplotlib installs should find the 64bit python install and put them in there when installing. (those installers get that information from the registry)

comment Running x64 bit geoprocessing Python in Python IDLE 2.7.6 x64 error
So you installed your own 64bit Python at "C:\Python27\"? If you're doing your own install you'll also have to install numpy and matplotlib (and maybe 1 or 2 more packages I dont recall off the top of my head). Keep in mind 10.2.2 uses Python 2.7.5. Yes thats only 0.0.4 versions off of 2.7.1, but there might be some dependencies that dont allow you to go back [just speculating, havent tested one way or another to confirm]

comment Why might Python Script be Crashing Inconsistently on ArcPy Batch LayerToKML script?
I can only guess its a data specific issue. Any chance you could email me some data which reproduces the issue and I'll take a look - khibma@esri.com

comment Where can I find in depth documentation on modifying arcgis stylesheets?
Actually I just re-read the link you posted - it states: "You cannot customize the parameter controls, only the background image and text."

comment Where can I find in depth documentation on modifying arcgis stylesheets?
Maybe someone will prove me wrong, but I believe the help link you attached is the only doc for tool style sheets. I believe the changes you want to make cannot be done (actual parameter changes). But as I dont have a help link that says so, I'll only post as a comment.

comment Is there a work-around for a completely_within spatial join in ArcGIS? This is bugged (confirmation by Esri Inc)
I believe (and this could change), 10.3 is slated for release around the User Conference (July)
