This Week at ADB, Inc., 25-31 March 2012

Steve Cole reports:

This was a normal week, as the Steves worked on various new projects (trying to make progress on multiple fronts) while the rest of the crew kept shipping orders. The weather this week was very nice. The spam storm dropped below 200 (often below 150) per day after reports of some big police raids on spam servers. We got the first samples of metal ships from Mongoose and they are superb.

New on e23 this week was the Federation Commander Battle Tug Ship Card pack.

Steve Cole worked on many different projects, including T, E, Captain's Log #45 (two pages done), Star Fleet Marines, Mongoose ships (reports on 11 old ones and posted several new Gorns), ACTASF errata (the Gorns are still broken and now there are reports that Kzintis are too mean), Star Fleet Alert, schedule, and Communique (ISC BT). He reviewed the Mongoose Klingon decal sheet, Hailing Frequencies, Federation Commander Reinforcements Attack (reports done), and the Starmada Battleship Armada cover and read Petrick's new SFB scenarios. He even found time to do five pages of Federation Admiral, the long-delayed campaign book. He exchanged notes with Jeff Siadek who promised a new draft of the Battlestations Star Fleet rulebook.

Steven Petrick mostly worked on the update for T2012, but also did some work on Mongoose ships, scenarios, tactics papers, and checked Adam Turner's new B10 model for the Battleship Armada cover. Due to the huge volume of orders he was often pulled into helping check outgoing shipments.

Leanna kept orders and accounting up to date.

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 1,160 friends), proofread ship cards, and did some marketing.
