This Week at ADB, Inc., 23-29 March 2014

Steve Cole reports:

This was a week of steady work. The weather this week was mild. The spam storm mostly remained at something under 200 per day. Two new PDF products dropped out of spacewarp this week, a color version of the Star Fleet Battles tournament SSDs and the Federation Commander Magellanic Playtest Pack. Both will be uploaded during April.

Nothing new on w23 this week while they reorganize.

New on DriveThru RPG and Wargame Vault this week was the Federation & Empire 2010 Rulebook.

Steve Cole worked on the Captain's Log #48 FLAP list, the Wall of Honor update, Communique and Hailing Frequencies, and other things. All individual pages for the Wall of Honor have been updated (some aren't posted yet) and the first eight of about 40 multiperson pages were updated.

Steven Petrick worked on the update for the Advanced Missions SSD book and the Federation Master Starship Book (which got moving after the two Steves figured out a more efficient way to do the art, which is all that's left to do). Steven also helped two fiction authors get their stories moving forward.

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 Hailing Frequencies and Traveller Prime Directive, managed our page on Facebook (which is up to 2043 friends), managed our Twitter feed (97 followers), commanded the Rangers, dealt with the continuing spam assault on the BBS, managed the blog feed, proofread Wall of Honor pages, took care of customers, and did some marketing.

The Starlist Update Project moved forward with over 40 states cross-checked, about 100 duplicate or obsolete entries deleted, 26 new entries, and 30 emails sent to older entries.
