This Week at ADB, Inc., 4-10 April 2010

Steve Cole reports:

The weather this week was ok, 40s and 50s in the morning, 60s and 70s in the afternoon.

Spam continues at about 3000 per day, and that's just the one-third that get through the server-filters.

I got a bunch of stuff done this week, including writing an alert for the April releases, writing the THIS WEEK blog, creating a dozen staff medal pages, revieweing a bunch of ship proposals for R12, writing a CapLog article on capital defenses, creating Orion rank insignia, doing some work on Romulan Armada, working on the FC Andromedan rules, and working on Communique #52.

The Board approved plans for Klingon Fleet Box #3, Fed Fleet Boxes #4, #5, and #6, and four carrier group boxes.

Steven Petrick was sick most of the week, but got some work done on CL#41 and R12.

Leanna continued working on the huge mail orders. Mike continued working on orders and building the inventory. We spoke frequently with Bruce Graw, who hopes to get the Pegasus minis to us on time.

Joel continued sending warning notices to copyright pirate websites. He posted Communique #52 and sent the April Hailing Frequencies on schedule on the 10th.

Jean Sexton expects to reach Key Date on PD FED in two weeks and be able to announce a summer release.

The contractor almost finished the house remodeling, and lacks about one day of final fixes. We have that scheduled for next week. I did a bunch of repairs to the Bengal barrier this week and I'm not sure if I have the back yard fixed so they cannot get out. The hearing in my left ear is starting to come back as the wax plug dissolves. I can hear distant but distinct voices now.

Jason Siadek of Gorilla Games was driving through Texas and his car broke down. We bought him and his delightful lady friend Julianne lunch and had a nice chat.

Xander Fulton sent some hilarious de-motivation posters.
