    Heh it's not meant in a bad way! But yeah, the players who focus more on interesting old folk over the obscurer terminal cases, and without the casual players deadpooling would be a poorer field. Plus it always makes a nice underdog story when one notches a win!

    Beauty of pools like this is in how even the most casual players have their chance to shine. Congrats Biblio!

    Also remember that when it was revealed Pola Illery died in the 90s years after getting a sucker Telegraph obit and DDP points in 2012? Which I must've mentioned half a dozen times but I love that story. Hah. Anyways TMIB let the points stay rather than reopen the 2012 files several years later which should tell you how not worth it it is to creak open the old databases!

    The Wiki page for Fujimori used to have his name as "Alberto Fujimori Fujimori". It doesn't any more so he probably doesn't actually have a reduplicated name, but it was a clear good faith inclusion and not something daft like putting Tom Parker on a centenarian theme team or something.

    Knock on wood - I think I did it Opening the Excel file works smoothly for me now - can someone else (preferably anyone who had prior trouble downloading it) try themselves to double check?

    Now that I'm home and settled I also have trouble actually downloading it. Looking into it, the issue likely looks to be nothing to do with what I did with the file, but that the DDP website currently is not currently "https" IE the url begins with "www." rather than "https://www.". If I assume correctly, if this can be altered, the file should be smoothly downloadable after that.

    The link is directly to the Excel file. I'll be home in about 9 hours. What I did with the file was save your old file, open it up in Excel, and save it with a 2022 filename. Not sure if there was some extra precaution to take to allow it to bypass the antivirus filters, maybe I should've changed the filename without actually opening it...

    Derby Dead Pool 2022

    December 1st again? Seems each year goes by faster and faster, doesn't it? Now time is flying so fast that a DDP co-host was born late enough to make SpongeBob references, but I digress... But yes, fear not, the North Star of the deadpooling world that we call the Derby Dead Pool continues to light up this morbid little pocket of our lives and has opened its doors for its 27th edition. As we enjoy @msc 's final month of DDP obits, I will be taking over the front page role starting next year, joining @Grim Up North and @gcreptile on the committee. THE RULES are unchanged from this year's ie the FFBI disqualifications, wider net of QOs, etc all remain instituted. IMPORTANT REMINDER: The spreadsheet method of entry that began last year remains in service. The 2022 spreadsheet, identical to the last one in all but filename, can be found here. It is heavily recommended to use the spreadsheet as means of entry to reduce Grim Up North's workload as much as possible. If you are absolutely unable to work with the Excel spreadsheet, still make sure to recheck GUN's DDP entry guide thread from last year to make the formatting of your email as smooth as possible.

    Now that David Gulpilil is didgeridoomed, 7 teams toss a shrimp on the barbie as they kangaroo leap up the scoreboard. CaptainChorizo and msc gain 40 points. Lynchian 35. The Unknown Man and the_engineer 30. drol 25. and An Fear Beag 25 sub points.

    It always felt like one name or another would delay us to infinite rounds. Well done, indeed!

    The death of famed Aboriginal actor David Gulpilil was much anticipated by our collective, with only chilean way and LizLemon thinking he would walk about for another year. Now that he's made his last wave, they get thrown even further out back. Though their teams were already well down under as it stands... 1. Sir Creep 8 2. Pedro67 9 3. The Quim Reaper 15 =4.

    The death of Frank Williams revs up the competition, with several teams hoping they've had part of a winning Formula. Charles De Gaulle gets 40 points. En Passant 35. The Quim Reaper, Toast, and YorkshireBanker 25. And Perhaps hits his second sub for 50 points. And with that is a new scoreboard as we head into the final lap of this year's HPDP, with Funeralopolis staying ahead but Perhaps making it closer than before... Additionally, with Toast's first hit, every team is now on the board! 1. Funeralopolis 319 2. Perhaps 289 3. Annami 254 4. markb4 231 5. CaptainChorizo 215.32 6. Book 215 7. Pedro67 210.19 8.

    Dead Wait, wildstorm, and Bibliogryphon correctly guessed Frank Williams. Thread closed.
