[Documentation] Now where are my databases again?

Everyone probably already has a version of this, but I saw some horrid code for it the other day. The below is probably 2005 specific (obviously, because of sys.master_files). Master.sys.master_files is very nice - keeps track of all the databases in one spot, rather than needing to query each databases' table.

USE master
SELECT sysdatabases.NAME, mf.* FROM sys.master_files mf
INNER JOIN sysdatabases ON mf.database_id = sysdatabases.dbid
ORDER BY physical_name
