This Week at ADB, Inc., 6-12 March 2011

Steve Cole reports:

This was a week to keep working on many projects. The weather was mild, touching the freezing point overnight but warm enough to take a pleasant walk most afternoons. The Spam storm remained AWOL, producing at most 79 on one day, usually about 50. The earthquake in Japan on the 11th was a shock to everyone.

New uploads to e23 included Captain's Log #2, the F&E Hurricane Scenario, and Federation Commander Orion Ship Card ePack #1.

Steve Cole worked on Starship Aldo (doing Deck B), Hydran Ship Card ePack #1, Andromedan Ship Card ePack #1, Lyran Ship Card ePack #1, ships for Transports Attacked, Communique #63, updated the ship request list for FC, ten pages of the FC Reference Scenario Book, the Romulan Border Revision 6 Rulebook, the reports on the F&E SIT for the ISC, helped Shannon Applecline compile the history of TFG (and ADB, and JagdPanther) for her book on the RPG industry, and formatted the exciting John Sickels story for Captain's Log #43. Steve started posting cryptic notes about yet another company wanting to make a deal to piggyback on our IP and contracts. Some of those work out, but most don't. These sound positive and promising.

Steven Petrick worked on Captain's Log #43 and Module C3A, and told Barry Kirk that we would have his proposed Omega tournament ships posted on the website.

Leanna kept orders and accounting up to date and did research to support the deal conversations.

Mike kept orders going out, rebuilt the inventory, and got the bookbinder fixed. (Steve Cole, an engineer, had to come help get the gears un-keyed so the new chain would go in.)

Joel did website updates and posted Communique #63 and Hailing Frequencies on schedule on the 10th.

Jean is proofing ePacks and making progress on more RPG books.
