This Week at ADB, Inc., 13-19 February 2011

Steve Cole reports:

This was a productive week at ADB, Inc. The weather this week was much nicer, with rare cold nights but 60F in the afternoons. The spam storm came to a sudden halt on Wednesday when the server installed new filters, dropping the average amount of spam from 800 per day to less than 100.

New uploads to e23 included the Revision-6b version of the FC Reference Rulebook, which had only a few typographical changes.

Steve Cole finished the SIT update for ISC War, although there will be at least two more rounds of updates before that product goes to press in June. He also did a Star Fleet Alert, designed an entirely new game about how to run a game publishing company, did most of Communique #63 including the Gorn BDL, worked on Transports Attacked (doing the Seltorian LTT), wrote a blog for Jean, and did six pages of Captain's Log #43.

Steven Petrick worked on C3A (which was pushed back to March because the wholesalers didn't want to bother buying just one new product in February) and on Captain's Log #43.

Leanna kept orders and accounting up to date.

Mike kept orders going out, rebuilt the inventory, and cleaned out the warehouse.

Joel did website updates, did a new logo for the GURPS Character Assistant, and helped Jean get some other things done.

Jean was ecstatic to hear that Steve Jackson had approved her GURPS Federation book, which is now scheduled for May release (and will be on e23 somewhat earlier than that). Jean phoned in updates to our GGIC catalog page and we discussed whether to do a Pathfinder version of PD (most Pathfinder players only play fantasy versions).
