I always seem to miss birthdays and anniversaries. *sigh* Not sure whether to call this one a birthday or an anniversary. Maybe the anniversary of prenatal announcement? Or was this back when nobody announced a product until it was done. (Did that ever happen? Or was I dreaming?)

Yesterday in history...

January 16, 1988 - Microsoft and Ashton-Tate announce Microsoft SQL Server, a relational database server software product for local area networks (LANs) based on a relational database management system licensed from Sybase.

Wow. Twenty years. I'm not sure I want to remember what I was doing in 1988... or how long my hair was. Heh.
