Uh oh… Debug Certificate expired!

I ran into this issue trying to run an Android app I am working on.  Actually, my first one.  Its been a while since I actually worked on it.  A co-worker (and friend) asked about it, and responded with an “Oh yeah, I should probably finish that.”  I was very close to finishing it and thought let me finish it over the weekend.  I open Netbeans clicked run and bam, I see this.

Debug Certificate expired on 9/10/11 8:12 PM
/Users/eliotpearson/elcode/PingCheck/nbproject/build-impl.xml:490: exec returned: 1
BUILD FAILED (total time: 3 seconds)

Years ago I probably would have panicked when I saw this but now I have Google.  I searched for, “debug certificate expired.”  I came across this link on Stack Exchange.  Its very simple to resolve.  Just find the debug.keystore and delete it.
