Death Database Released on DVD, Panned by Critics as 'Derivative'

From U.S. Newswire:

Social Security Administration's Death Master File Official Version Now Available on DVD

SPRINGFIELD, Va., Dec. 21 /U.S. Newswire/ -- The Official Version of the Social Security Administration Death Master File is now available on DVD. The Death Master File is the complete and official SSA database of persons reported to SSA as being deceased. The new DVD version is available from the National Technical Information Service.

The SSA Death Master File is used by leading government, financial, investigative, credit reporting, medical research and other industries to verify identity as well as to prevent fraud and comply with the USA Patriot Act. The new DVD version delivers the complete database on one DVD disc, rather than 37 magnetic cartridges or 4 CD-ROM. The DVD will save backup storage space as well as save time uploading the file.

To buy your own copy for only $6,900, visit the NTIS website. The DVD comes without a commentary track, and don't expect to find any Easter Eggs.


Are they on any Oscar short lists?


I'm not sure the Academy voters would sit through it. The opening credits seem to go on forever, and all the famous actors listed have been out of the business for some time.
