Lunch with DB god Steve Fanning

One of the benefits of being involved with highly complex and interesting projects is the experts you are able to work with and become friends with during the various phases.   One of the projects I am on working on is with Steve Fanning.  Steve is the President of Path To Progress.

Steve has three plus decades of IT experience and is the key technical consultant on the project I referred to above.  Steve is a true database god in every sense of the word and it is a real privilege to work with someone of Steve's caliber.

As Steve and I discussed today at lunch, we need  a simple way to determine who purchase lunch last.  Having this on my home page here seemed to be as scalable as any other mechanism :-)
