This Week at ADB, Inc., 8-14 September 2013

Steve Cole reports:

This was a week of intense work trying to get SFB Module C6 finished. The weather this week was cooler than before. The spam storm mostly remained at something under 200 per day.

We had a problem with a scenario and did not get the planned item uploaded to e23 this week. New on DriveThru RPG and Wargame Vault was JagdPanther #5.
Steve Cole worked on parts of C6 (maps, cover, background, proofreading, ship names) but mostly focused on his small projects list. He added blurbs to the Starline 2500 ships on the shopping cart, wrote blogs, finished Communique, created a new galaxy map for Jean's Traveller Prime Directive book, talked with the company that will eventually print Tribbles, wrote character sketches for the Away Team Log supplements, did some entries in the future encyclopedia, got a proper in-tray for his desk and organized the loose papers on his desk, finished a generic computer deal sheet to use in future negotiations, did the scenario for Romulan ePack #3, and finished the contract for another project.

Chuck Strong, the head of our F&E department, stopped by on Tuesday and helped organize a program to make small but steady progress on a 2014 revision of Fighter Ops.

Steven Petrick worked on C6 and petty much nothing else.

Leanna kept orders and accounting up to date.

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

Simone sent out Hailing Frequencies, uploaded Communique #93, 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 1739 friends), managed our Twitter feed (62 followers), commanded the Rangers, managed the blog feed, proofread C6, dealt with Mongoose, took care of customers, and did some marketing (mostly of ebooks).
