This Week at ADB, Inc., 8-14 June 2014

Steve Cole reports:

This was a week of steady work on new projects. The weather this week was not as hot as last week, but in the 80s most days. The spam storm mostly remained at something under 200 per day.

New on Warehouse 23, DriveThru RPG, and Wargame Vault this week was the Advanced Missions SSD book (in color and in black and white).

New on DriveThru RPG and Wargame Vault this week was Captain's Log #5.

Steve Cole worked on the Federation Commander Tactics Manual, making Jean's fixes and doing some missing graphics. Steve moved his pistol target box to his office so he could practice marksmanship without getting out of his chair. Steve finished Communique #102 (with help from Steven Petrick, Jean, and the staff). Progress on the 2500s this week included resolving the stand issue (sending the B10 and Vulture to prototype), posting new ships (Slaver, Kzinti BB, and Gorn BB), and sending the BATS to prototype. He also wrote some blogs, did a three-page article for Captain's Log #49, helped a fiction author, and organized the sale of some obsolete F&E counters. The F&E soft pledge experiment worked, sending Fighter Operations 2014 into the print que for early fall. Steve used the nice weather to get a lot of exercise walking Wolf and Ramses (but not at the same time).

Steven Petrick worked on Captain's Log #49.

The Starlist Update Project moved forward with five new entries, two updates, and one older entry moved to the archive.

Leanna kept orders and accounting up to date.

Mike kept orders going out and rebuilt the inventory.

Simone did website updates, finished the My Day archive page that was never finished before, created and sent out Hailing Frequencies, and did some graphics.

Jean worked on PDF uploads, managed our page on Facebook (which is up to 2129 friends), managed our Twitter feed (103 followers), commanded the Rangers, dealt with the continuing spam assault on the BBS, managed the blog feed, proofread Federation Commander Tactics Manual, took care of customers, took one of the Steves to a Chinese buffet, and did some marketing.

Steve Cole drove Leanna and Jean to Lubbock so they could see "Driving Miss Daisy" while Steve went to Joe's Crab Shack.
