This Week at ADB, Inc., 14-20 April 2013

Steve Cole reports:

This was a week of steady progress on several products. The weather this week was moderate, often very cold in the mornings and usually pretty warm in the afternoon. The spam storm mostly remained at something under 200 per day. We were all shocked by the Boston Marathon bombings and grateful that police found the terrorists.

New on e23 this week Battlewagon (2nd Edition)

Steve Cole worked on several projects, including: posted Orion 2500s for comment, worked on Captain's Log #47, did one tiny part of the project to award medals for the products done prior to 1993, and checked reports on the FMSSB. His recovery from the broken leg went very well, and by the end of the week he was able to walk (slowly) anywhere he needed to (but his leg did get sore by later afternoon). Steve watched the first two seasons of Downton Abbey and amused customers by pretending he thought it was Downtown Abby and that he was having trouble figuring out where Abby was and why she never went down town.

Steven Petrick worked on almost entirely on the Federation 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. Joel announced that he had found a real-world job and would be leaving at the end of the month, but would continue to maintain the website until we found a replacement.

Jean managed our page on Facebook (which is up to 1,569 friends) and did some marketing.
