The Acorn Electron the power behind SQL Server

Steve Jones recently interviewed me for http://SQLServerCentral.com, the interview is now live.

If you read the interview with Paul Randal  a few weeks ago you will see that we both had Acorn Electrons as our first computers. This made me chuckle as the electron was the baby of the bbs

I guess this this goes to show our age but also how the use of BBC influenced many people in the late eighties. I will say that I never went to the level of programming assembly as Paul did, but I guess thats why Paul develops SQL Server and I use it :)

I wonder how many other people working in the SQL Team or using SQL started their life (programming that is) working with the Acorn
