This Week at ADB, Inc., 7-13 July 2013

Steve Cole reports:

This was the week of the bizarre BBS crash that wiped out the entire database of 1600 users. At about the same time, the shopping cart crashed. It's on a different server and we must assume the two events are just coincidence. The weather this week was hot, reaching 96°F every day. The spam storm mostly remained at something under 200 per day.

New on e23 this week was Captain's Log #29.

We got Hailing Frequencies for June and Communique #90 sent out on 8 July but for some reason most people did not get the emailed link. We're still looking into that as we work to get Hailing Frequencies for July and Communique #91 out on the 15th of July.

Steve Cole worked on the FLAP list, the Wall of Honor, Starline 2400 quality control, worked on the broken links in the Traveller page layout file, and discussed Starline 2500 and ACTASF marketing with Matthew at Mongoose.

Steven Petrick worked on the Paravian part of Module C6, and did some quality control on the Starline 2400s.

Leanna kept orders and accounting up to date.

Mike kept orders going out, rebuilt the inventory, and did quality control on the 2400s.

Jean managed our page on Facebook (which is up to 1,659 friends), managed our Twitter feed (39 followers), proofread Communique, did her part of Hailing Frequencies, got the Rangers organized, got Simone's internship paperwork done, worked on Traveller, dealt with the BBS database crash, and did some marketing. Jean put Gary Carney to work on an Omega RPG book.
