This Week at ADB, Inc., 3-9 March 2013

Steve Cole reports:

This was a quiet week at ADB, with progress on many projects. The weather this week included cool mornings and warmer afternoons. The spam storm mostly remained at something under 200 per day.

Steve Cole continued to recover from his broken leg. He was still confined to a wheelchair and unable to walk; the one time he tried to walk cost him an entire day's work. That said, he did manage to complete the Wall of Honor updates (the last few pages are waiting for Jean to check before they get uploaded), the update of the Federation Commander Reference Ship Chart (now on line), Communique #87 and Hailing Frequencies (set to post Monday), and the Fleet Doctrine Rules for ACTASF, FC, and Starmada. He approved the ACTASF ship card sets for the Kzintis, Romulans, and Tholians. At the end of the week he was cleaning old files out of his hard drive to facilitate the new backup system.

Steven Petrick worked on the monster article for Captain's Log #47, Module C6, and the Master Starship Book.

Leanna kept orders and accounting up to date.

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

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

Jean managed our page on Facebook (which is up to 1528 friends), proofread Communique and Hailing Frequencies, and did some marketing. Jean was awarded a special honor scroll for her First Contact Medal reflecting that the ADB page on Facebook had passed 1500 friends, something no game publisher of our size had achieved.
