DBASEII and Mr. SPOCK: Today we lost our first officer Mr Spock leaving definitely the Enterprise star-ship but not our hearts. Few people really knows the importance of Mr Spock on influencing our modern databases. In 1979, a programmer called Wayne Ratlif created a database that could accept common English words like “find”, “insert”, “append”, “browse”, etc.. Wayne worked for Jet Propulsion Laboratories in Pasadena.

It was possible also to display messages in the screen creating menus, print data and have real applications trying to bring the natural manner that Mr Spock accessed data in the sophisticated Enterprise. The database received the name of Mr. Spock home planet, in other words, Vulcan. Later the software turns commercial and it was renamed as DBASEII even not having a first version… Vulcan or DBASEII was able to run in 24KRAM computers based on Z80 processor until huge main frames and introduced a modern database management even not being a full relational database. I worked with “Vulcan” database when I was 13 years old creating an application for storage control. I am thankful for all inspiration that Mr Spock brought during decades to our lives and our technology.

R.I.P. Mr Spock or Leonard Simon Nimoy and thanks for all!!!

(March 26, 1931 – February 27, 2015)
