This Week at ADB, Inc., 15-21 April 2012

Steve Cole reports:

This was supposed to be a week or furious work getting Marines/Assault, Nova-Starmada, and Romulans PD20M to press. That didn't happen because Steve Cole was injured in a fall on Tuesday and (for all practical purposes) was not here (or might as well not have been) all week. The weather this week was decent. The spam storm mostly remained at something over 200 per day.

Leanna and Steve Cole continued celebrating events on the 35th anniversary of their whirlwind courtship. This was the furious "week two" when they went out on a date every single day (sometimes twice) and played their first game of miniature golf (Leanna won, and not because Steve let it happen).

New on e23 this week was Captain's Log #22.

A second entire week went by with none of the promised shipments of 2500 miniatures from Mongoose and no explanation why these shipments have not been made.

Steve Cole accomplished only five of his 20 goals (one page of Book E, set up files for Communique #77 and Hailing Frequencies for May, got the quotes on the Marines and Nova covers and sent them to press, had his dental appointment, read everything on his clipboard of stuff from Petrick, and ordered the countersheet and interior art for FC Reinforcements. That, and a lot of moaning and groaning, was about it. At least when he was home he could supervise the landscapers who were updating Leanna's back yard.

Steven Petrick wound up work on T2012 and started doing the revision to SFB Module R2 (updating 20 SSDs). He also worked on the tactical sections of Captain's Log #45.

Leanna kept orders and accounting up to date and ordered a new Kyocera 9530 (Ziva) to replace the worn-out Samantha and Vala.

Mike kept orders going out, rebuilt the inventory, and managed customer service.

Joel did website updates, chased pirates, and helped Mike.

Jean managed our page on Facebook (which is up to 1,173 friends), proofread sales blurbs, and did some marketing.
