Visual Studio 2010 Giveaway - The Winners and the Answers

All three licenses of Visual 2010 Ultimate with MSDN have been claimed, and here are the winners:

Here are the questions and their respective answers:

What is a lamb roll?

A lamb roll is a link pointing back to Lambchop singing a particular never-ending song. I used to lambroll folks a lot on Twitter, but I've given up my wayward ways now that Paul Randal has laid claim to all the sheep on Twitter.

Who might just be the most "hated" man in the SQL Server community? (Hint: the community keeps a running list of everyone he has potentially offended during his presentations)

This would be Buck Woody (twitter | blog). Though he's quite beloved in the community, the joke is he should be hated, because of the extensive list of folks, products, things, animals, etc., that he picks on during his presentations. The list has reached near legendary status.

What was SQL Rockstar's moniker in the community before he adopted the rock star persona?

That would be SQLBatman (note the sticker in the top right).

Name any three members of the current PASS Board of Directors.

You can see them all on the PASS Board of Directors page.

What long time SQL Server MVP wrote a Perl module called Win32::SqlServer? (Hint: Spelling counts)

Erland Sommarskog is the MVP in question. His website is a great resource of articles and tools.

IT Security, MySQL, Perl, SQL Server, and Windows technologies.
