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

Steve Cole reports:

This was a week of steady work on many projects. The weather this week was moderate until Wednesday when it turned very cold, dropping to 9°F on Saturday. The spam storm mostly remained at something under 200 per day.

New on e23 this week was Captain's Log #33.

New on DriveThru RPG and Wargame Vault this week is Captain's Log #47 Supplement.

Steve Cole worked on Communique and Hailing Frequencies, Traveller Prime Directive (reviewing things Mike West and Jean were doing), ACTASF (reviewing Tony L. Thomas's draft revisions to the rules), wrote some blogs, ordered a new production mold for the revised 2500 King Eagle, reviewed several ships (Orion DW, Tholian TK5, Tholian DN) and sent instructions to Mongoose to modify them (or in the case of the Klingon D7C set the design aside for later), looked for new 2500 stands, and investigated doing larger prestige scale miniatures.

Tony L. Thomas produced a better list of the changes needed for ACTASF1.2, revised all turn modes, damage scores, and shield ratings.

Steven Petrick worked on Captain's Log #48 and the Federation Master Starship Book. He also proofread Communique and Hailing Frequencies and wrote a blog.

Leanna kept orders and accounting up to date.

Mike kept orders going out and rebuilt the inventory.

Simone did website updates and some graphics.

Jean worked on Traveller Prime Directive (psionics, Faz) and Hailing Frequencies, managed our page on Facebook (which is up to 1,871 friends), managed our Twitter feed (80 followers) and blogs, commanded the Rangers, dealt with the renewed spam assault on the BBS, managed the blog feed, proofread Communique, dealt with public relations from the change in the Mongoose deal, took care of customers, and did some marketing.
