comment Is it possible to redesign OpenStreetMaps tiles?
I made a custom tileset on their website (as opposed to tilemill), and worked it into a website I'm developing. With all of the refreshes I did to get the look I wanted (and sharing the page with a few others) I have 522 map views. There might be a more specific explanation of map views on their site, but I haven't seen it.

MapBox does have a free option. You can customize tiles, which MapBox will cloud host free for up to 3k map views. 50MB of storage is also included in the free plan.

comment Should We Be Using a GIS?
MySQL probably isn't the greatest db to choose as far as spatial functionality goes. MySQL doesn't interface with ArcGIS, but Postgres does. PostGIS is the spatial extention for postgres. Check out OpenGeo Suite for all the software tools you would need in a single open source package. opengeo.org/products/suite/register

comment help in field calculator
Your script assumes that each statement builds on the last. Unfortunately, the way the code is set up, each block is evaluated on it's own. You really need to nest some if-else statements to cover all four of your potential outcomes (boy, boy; boy, Non-boy; Non-boy, boy; Non-boy, Non-boy)

comment Editing symbology of contourlines with Arcpy
You could create a .lyr file with the 100' symbology then apply it programmatically with python.

comment Legend question
Once you have the information you need in a legend you can right click -> Convert to Graphics. You'll have to un-group the items, but you have total control over the layout. Keep in mind that after converting to graphics your legend will no longer auto-update based on changes in layer symbology.

comment How do I create a non-spatial web map
So I could make a map of an image on Mercator without an underlying basemap. How would I get a custom image into Mercator?

Yes, but it doesn't have to be tied to any projected coordinate system.

comment When to use ModelBuilder over Python scripting and vice versa?
+1 NESTED LOOPS & arcpy.mapping! I like the ability to make calculations within a script and add them to attribute tables or better yet to the map layout (area of each wetland type for example).

comment Why does Field Calculator return 0 values when decimals are expected?
In 10.0 the default interpreter is VBscript. Any chance you haven't selected Python?

comment Export each layer in map to a separate image
File names can't have spaces, but aliases can. Avoid the spaces in your file names and rename them in your table of contents. You can chance the alias manually if it's not a huge number of files. If you're using ArcGIS 10.1 there's an arcpy function to automate the process. resources.arcgis.com/en/help/main/10.1/index.html#//…

Couldn't you just use underscores instead of spaces?

comment Error when creating insert cursor in ArcPy?
This was almost a year ago, I can't really remember the context of the solution. You might be better served to post your own question including your code!

comment How to make a GIS inventory?
It never hurts to start out by taking a visual inventory and sketching out a design before you get into attacking an old server with python.

comment Failed to delete a domain from the database
Linestring or poly boundary is self-intersecting sounds like more of a topology error than a domain error.

comment Failed to delete a domain from the database
You could just disassociate the domain with the field and leave it in the geodatabase. I don't think it would harm anything to have an unused domain. Although if your domain is associated with a field, that's likely why you can't delete it in the first place.

You'd likely need to use arcpy.Delete_management() as opposed to del
