comment How to write XML attributes from feature with ArcView license?
So the problem isn't with the writing of the XML then, but with extracting the feature data to push to XML? If so, then show us some more of the code you are using to get the feature data out with your searchcursor.

comment Get boundary of raster image as polygon in ArcGIS Desktop?
gis.stackexchange.com/a/26944/65 - this method will get you the boundary, but will also include nodata and zero cells as well, not sure if that's a deal breaker or not.

Dictionaries are often a savior for me as well; it's pretty amazing the things you can do with them.

comment What are the Python tools/modules/add-ins crucial in GIS?
Do you use the pdfgen package or platypus? I need to gen reports with jpegs and text, nothing too fancy.

This is a great way to experiment with Ubuntu, I have done just this myself, and it's easy and straightforward.

comment Looping based on a spreasheet using python (in ArcGIS 9.3)
I may be mistaken, but can't you connect directly to a XLS in 9.3 and then just run a SearchCursor directly on it? I'm running 10.0 or I'd just test it.

comment Arcpy - How do I specify the precision and scale of a new field?
Wow, there's a shocker, shapefiles support it, but file geodatabase doesn't.

comment Arcpy - How do I specify the precision and scale of a new field?
So is it safe to assume that precision and scale also DO NOT apply to shapefiles?
