Ward’s RAP

Ward Pond has been talking about RAP all day today on Twitter. I’m not normally one to RAP, but I’ve been inspired to put out a little lyrical verse in Ward’s honor.

[ahem]

Ward’s RAP:

My name is Ward, last name Pond
SQL Server is of what I’m fond
I like my data relational
and my processes transactional
(say what?)
If you don’t know about t-logs
Then you best be reading my blogs
‘Cause I’m a real SQL master
I knows how to make the SQL go faster
Command line is my only tool
Not like that SSMS junkie, SQLFool
So don’t mess with me, or you’ll be TechEd skooled

Word. And I don’t mean Office.

  7. Very inspiring, I may just have to have a go as well. A 2009 version maybe. Then again maybe not. (hard act to follow etc…)
    Here was my last rhyming attempt:
