This Week at ADB, Inc., 11-17 May 2014

Steve Cole reports:

This was another week of steady work. The weather this week was warm, often very hot. The spam storm mostly remained at something under 200 per day. The annual company picnic held on 15 May was great fun for the entire staff.

New on DriveThru RPG and Wargame Vault this week was Captain's Log #4.

Steve Cole worked on the Federation Commander Tactics Manual and is in the last chapter; he also wrote some blogs. Bruce Graw reported that eight ships had gone into ADB Master Mold 2501. Paul Franz reports that 106 third generation SSDs are now on SFBOL.

Steven Petrick worked on the Advanced Missions SSD book and the battle groups for Captain's Log #49. No progress was made on the Federation Master Starship Book because Steve Cole was busy with the Federation Commander Tactics Manual and could not work on art. We got a massive shipment of Starline 2400 production and both Steves took much of two days checking it in and approving quality control.

The Starlist Update Project moved forward with 9 new entries, 5 updates, and 2 old listings move to the archives. The posting of archived names on the BBS resulted in several new entries and updates being done.

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, managed our page on Facebook (which is up to 2106 friends), managed our Twitter feed (98 followers), commanded the Rangers, dealt with the continuing spam assault on the BBS, dealt with a wave of people illegally using our photos on Ebay, managed the blog feed, proofread much of the Federation Commander Tactics Manual, took care of customers, and did some marketing.
