This Week at ADB, Inc., 20-26 July 2014

Steve Cole reports:

This was the second of three intense weeks of work on Captain's Log #49. The theory was to finish laying out, assembling, and writing the book this week and then spend next week proofreading, editing, tweaking, and finishing it. The problem with this plan was that all of the department heads got their stuff in late, so we ended up (not delayed but) with far more "final done" pages than any other second week (86% done overall), even while more "still waiting for content" pages remained on the chart than ever before. By the end of the week, all of the late stuff showed up so everything can still be finished on time. The weather this week was very hot, over 90F every day. The spam storm mostly remained at something under 200 per day.
