comment Is there a standardized or “most used” dummy Z value?
Also, my recommendation was for the usage of NaN was as it relates to the Z value inside the geometry. So regardless of whether the value is in a database or not, IMHO it should be serialized with the geometry - so it should just work...

for integers you can have NaNs: numeric_limits<int>::quiet_NaN()

comment difference between Simple and Attributed relationship classes?
Did I mention these are descriptions of the internal representations of GDB rel classes? I fixed bugs and maintained the ESRI rel classes for 3 years :)

comment difference between Simple and Attributed relationship classes?
To answer your question "why would you have a relationship class if you didn't have attributes" basically relationship classes are also a way to message another class of edit events (object deleted, modified, inserted). One example is feature linked annotation (the text in the destination class changes with edits to the origin class). There are many other examples.

comment Using ArcGIS 10 on a virtual machine with OSX
@celenius Yes, that is one of the modes supported with this configuration. As long as you give enough memory to the bootcamp partition (to avoid heavy paging) and you have the vmware-tools installed, it should run fine. However, when you want to run at full speed, you always have the option to reboot the machine and boot from that partition without having OSX nor VMWare have anything to do with it. The point is that with this setup, you can run in either mode (which is not true if you had a "pure" VM setup).

Not true. My post describes that you can also run both at the same time using Fusion.
