This Week at ADB, Inc., 1-7 September 2013

Steve Cole reports:

This was a week of steady work, and gaining traction. Simone caught up on critical site fixes and began tackling some major projects, Steve Cole reorganized his "to do" list and starting getting some half-forgotten tasks taken care of, and Jean learned how to update the shopping cart without asking someone else to do it for her. The weather this week was warm, in the 90s most days. The spam storm mostly remained at something under 200 per day.

New on e23 this week was Captain's Log #31. New on DriveThru RPG and Wargame Vault was Federation Commander: First Missions. 

Steve Cole worked on character sketches for the Away Team Log supplement, did Communique #93, reviewed fiction proposals (rejecting most of them), added color text to a lot of Starline 2500 minis on the shopping cart, signed the contract for the new roof on the building, and wrote a few pages of Captain's Log #48.

Steven Petrick worked on SFB Module C6, which is in its final week of design work just before final editing.

Leanna kept orders and accounting up to date.

Mike kept orders going out, rebuilt the inventory, and managed customer service. Mike got the two Steves to help him do QC checks on a huge shipment of 2400s and the first shipment of 2500s from the new factory.

Simone did website updates and some graphics, helped in the warehouse, and chased pirates.

Jean worked on Traveller Prime Directive, managed our page on Facebook (which is up to 1,727 friends), managed our Twitter feed (58 followers), commanded the Rangers, got SVC to do a Star Fleet Alert for Module C6, managed the blog feed, proofread Communique, Hailing Frequencies, and some Captain's Log #48 stuff, dealt with Mongoose, took care of customers, and did some marketing.
