This Week at ADB, Inc., 13-19 April 2014

Steve Cole reports:

This was the week that we announced the new price structure for the Starline 2500 miniatures (and made them mail-order only). The weather this week was cold to start but warmed up by midweek. The spam storm mostly remained at something under 200 per day.

New on Warehouse 23 this week: SFB Module T with colorized SSDs.

New on DriveThru RPG and Wargame Vault this week: F&E Chart Book, Battlewagon Article #4, SFB Module T (rulebook, colorized SSDs, and B&W SSDs), and Federation Commander Klingon Ship Card Pack #1.

Steve Cole worked on the Federation Commander Tactics Manual, art for the Federation Master Starship Book (35 ships, plus some color ones for Facebook), blogs, and six WYN cards for FCOL. He started replacing the last of the metal Ramses Barrier with wooden planks. After speaking with Bruce Graw, Steve assigned Gary Carney to create the lost empires of the Omega Sector. He had a bit of excitement on Tuesday, helping to direct traffic around a bad highway accident, using his old State Guard training.

Steven Petrick worked on the Federation Master Starship Book (adding art) and the Advanced Missions SSD book. He assigned battle pairs for the battle groups scenario for Captain's Log #49.

The Starlist Update Project moved forward with 150 older entries sent emails, of which about 90 were moved to archives and about 10 sent updated information. Twelve new entries were added.

Leanna kept orders and accounting up to date.

Mike kept orders going out and rebuilt the inventory.

Simone did website updates, finished the Wall of Honor, and did some graphics.

Jean worked on the Starline 2500 price change thing, managed our page on Facebook (which is up to 2077 friends), managed our Twitter feed (97 followers), commanded the Rangers, dealt with the continuing spam assault on the BBS (deleting 4 spambots), managed the blog feed, proofread Federation Commander Tactics Manual, took care of customers, sunk a pirate, and did some marketing. She also won the poetry contest at UNCP which she managed for 14 years.
