This Week at ADB, Inc., 5-11 January 2014

Steve Cole reports:

This was a week in which the staff recovered from the Hideous Rotting Plague. The weather this week was very cold in the mornings but often mild in the afternoon. The spam storm mostly remained at something under 200 per day.

New on DriveThru RPG and Wargame Vault this week were both editions (Nova and Admiral) of Romulan Armada.

Steve Cole rested and recovered, and did some work on Communique, Hailing Frequencies, the new 2425 page, the year-ahead blog, and reviewed 2500 and 2400 miniatures. Steve had skin cancer surgery (the first of two or three) which left his right arm very sore. The Tholian TK5 and DN were ready for (but not enough to fill) a master mold, but the new 2500 B10 had to be sent back to be done over.

Steven Petrick rested and recovered, proofread Communique and Hailing Frequencies, and did some work on Captain's Log #48 and new 2500 miniatures.

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 struggled valiantly to stay at her desk despite the plague. She worked on Traveller Prime Directive, managed our page on Facebook (which is up to 1943 friends), managed our Twitter feed (85 followers), commanded the Rangers, dealt with the continuing spam assault on the BBS and various PHP issues, managed the blog feed, proofread Hailing Frequencies and Communique, took care of customers, did a Talkshoe session when she was too sick to sit up, and did some marketing.
