This Week at ADB, Inc., 24-30 November 2013

Steve Cole reports:

This was this week of the Thanksgiving holiday, but we actually got a lot of progress made. The weather this week was very cold at the start by shirtsleeve warm by Saturday. The spam storm mostly remained at something under 200 per day.

New on DriveThru RPG and Wargame Vault this week: Captain's Log #1.

Steve Cole worked on the Starline 2500s, Captain's Log #48, ACTASF, Traveller Prime Directive, and other projects.

Steven Petrick worked on Captain's Log #48 and on the Federation Master Starship Book.

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 PD, managed our page on Facebook (which is up to 1,861 friends), managed our Twitter feed (78 followers), commanded the Rangers, dealt with the continuing spam assault on the BBS (which she seemed to have finally defeated on Friday by blocking spammer IPs), managed the blog feed, dealt with public relations from the change in the Mongoose deal (including paying off the Mongoose Infantry), took care of customers, and did some marketing.

The Friendly Takeover (tm) of the Joint Venture product lines continued to move forward. Matthew gave good advice on Traveller PD. We have a solid project definition for the changes to ACTASF (including active discussions of turn modes, fast ships, and special actions). The first new 2500 (Klingon B10) was formally ordered and progress was made on the second one (Orion BR) and on the revised Kzinti NCA. Certain 2400s that work fine for the 2500 series were rebranded 2425 and will be sold to both markets.
