I recently upgraded to a new development machine, which means the certificate used to sign my applications during debug changed. Under most circumstances you’ll never notice a difference, but if you’re developing apps using Google’s Maps API you’ll find that your old API key no longer works with the new certificate fingerprint. Google's instructions walk you through retrieving the MD5 fingerprint of your SDK debug certificate - the certificate that you’re probably signing your apps with before publishing, ...
BizTalk’s HIPAA X12 schemas have several repeating date/time segments in them, where the XML winds up looking something like this: <DTM_StatementDate> <DTM01_DateTimeQualifier... <DTM02_ClaimDate>2012... </DTM_StatementDate> <DTM_StatementDate> <DTM01_DateTimeQualifier... <DTM02_ClaimDate>2012... </DTM_StatementDate> The corresponding ...

Here is a simple example, lets try and find the following address: 240 St. Joseph Ave, 94115. Live Maps / Live Local / Local Live / Virtual Earth finds it with no errors or warnings. Yahoo Local Gets the right location after using the closest match "240 Saint Josephs Ave, San Francisco, CA 94115". Web 1.0 Mapquest can't find the address but it does suggests the correct location. Ask Maps & Directions can't find the address but focuses the map on the correct zip code. Google Maps can't find the ...
