Win a prize with your story behind scott/tiger?

It is the universal Oracle account. Known to thousand, maybe even millions... But who is "scott" and why is his password, "tiger".

If you know, "Do tell."

If you don't, make something entertaining up and share it here (or in your own blog, via a link!)

The prize....

A nice tie-dyed bubble-bursting flame out t-shirt.

The details:

  1. It's my shirt. I decide who gets it. Period.
  2. Once the comment link closes, entries are, too. Think and type fast.
  3. I will make a reasonable attempt to contact the winner. If I cannot get a mailing address from you after making that attempt, the shirt will go to somebody else.
  4. If you need to whine about any of this, you probably should not enter.
Comments:

Bruce Scott was one of the first employees of Software Development Laboratories which became Oracle. Tiger was the name of his cat.

I can can collaborate the ThinGuy's answer. About five years ago, while Bruce Scott was the CEO of Pointbase, i asked him if this story was actually true, and he confirmed that in deed it was.
