comment Unable to explode multipart polygon
Perhaps try using GDAL to convert to/from JSON or XML, as described here to see if that cleans up the error?

comment ArcGIS Javascript API - Refresh
Can you outline a scenario where you'd need to refresh a tiled or feature layer? Would removing a layer then re-adding it suffice?

comment When making a point feature a different point feature appears
take a look at the editing in ArcGIS 10 document. It sounds like you need to set the correct layer in the Create Features dialog

comment Can ESRI Personal Geodatabase be viewed with any software other than ArcGIS?
You should also be careful to keep a backup of your personal geodatabase before doing this. While Access is a great way to peek into the database, and even make changes, you can easily kill your database if you edit the wrong table

comment Splitting worldwide roads into multiple road datasets with less than threshold number of features?
If this is just a one-off operation (you only need to convert the roads once) then it may be faster to simply create a regular mesh polygon with a small square size, use it to cut up your roads, and rasterize those (rather than spending lots of time coming up with the ultimate, most efficient algorithm which you'll never use again)

comment Is it possible to change the name of a Stamen basemap in OpenLayers?
Thanks for the tip, however I don't believe this will actually work. As far as I can see, you need to use one of their supported keywords (toner, toner-lite, watercolor, etc) in order to specify a Stamen map
