comment Arcpy adds erroneous interior ring when writing adjacent, multipart geometry
Yeah - the arcpy.AsShape method has issues - see here for another example of this flawed behavior: gis.stackexchange.com/questions/10201/…

comment Why does ESRI make me store my DBF doubles as strings?
Thank you, thank you and thank you. Based on the reception of the question I was starting to think I was losing it. Seemed like the Senior Engineers didn't like me slamming The ESRI. lol.

comment How to generate reports from a Shapefile?
What is this thing you speak of -- "print composer"? It would help if you mentioned your platform :: is this for the web or desktop? Are you running Windows or Linux? ArcGIS, QGIS, SQL Server, PostGres, .NET, Ruby, &c, &c, &c

@Ragi - OK - I'll check out the AddHistoricalMarker method. The response I was referring to there directed the op to a mommy blog post about 25yr old Mr. Sketch scented markers. You should revisit. def. worth your time. ;)

Yah - that looks like a pretty solid thread. I just put SP4 on and .. no love.

comment arcpy.geometry __geo_interface__ and AsShape() function: loss of precision and holes
Yes, you're right, it should. I changed it to spit out a valid GeoJSON dictionary obj. but after checking against the AsShape method I realized the futility of my efforts.

I like the first bit but I really, really, really don't want to listen to edit events on the clients.

I'm looking at this from an automation point of view (weekly, possibly nightly). Can I programmatically create an historical marker? It doesn't look like it. forums.arcgis.com/threads/23896-Creating-historical-marker (NOTE CHRIS SNYDER'S EXCELLENT RESPONSE).
