This Week at ADB, Inc., 6-12 October 2013

Steve Cole reports: 

This was a week of steady work on many projects. The weather this week was cooler. The spam storm mostly remained at something under 200 per day. A new assault began on our BBS by a Chinese content spam engine, sending over a dozen fake people registering on the BBS every day, clogging up the system and flooding the "pending registrations" file. We played our first four-player game of Castellan at the first "game night" in months (Leanna won).

We got the Tribbles vs. Klingons quote from China on Thursday and started spending a lot of time getting ready to launch the Kickstarter for it (probably in early January, with game release next summer).

New on e23, DriveThru, and Wargame Vault this week: Federation Commander Academy.

Steve Cole (still suffering from a wicked cold) worked on Federation Admiral, blogs, Tribbles, a Star Fleet Alert, Captain's Log #48, the Academy upload, Communique, and Hailing Frequencies.

Steven Petrick worked on stuff for Captain's Log #48.

Leanna kept orders and accounting up to date.

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

Simone did website updates and some graphics and sent out Communique and Hailing Frequencies.

Jean worked on Tribbles, the PAMPER list, managed our page on Facebook (which is up to 1804 friends), managed our Twitter feed (which has 64 followers), commanded the Rangers, managed the blog feed, proofread the Communique and Hailing Frequencies, dealt with Mongoose, took care of customers, and did some marketing.
