According to Tibor Karaszi,

The very first page in a database file (page 0) is the boot page.

Does it mean that the first record on that page is the one called boot record? Probably, but I don't know.

New code box

There's a new way to format code on the site - the red speech bubble logo will automatically format T-SQL for you. The original code box is still there for XML, etc. More details here.
