This Week at ADB, Inc., 3-9 August 2014

Steve Cole reports:

This should have been an easy week for the design team, doing the post-production list for Captain's Log #49, but it wasn't. We also had to finish Hailing Frequencies for August, Communique #104, the Captain's Log #49 Supplemental File (all done), the Federation Master Starship Book (which won't be finished until Monday even working all weekend), and the Captain's Log #49 large print edition (which won't be done until next week). The weather this week was cool in the morning but hot in the afternoon. The spam storm mostly remained at something under 200 per day. Our friends Terri and Sam Prey of Final Sword Productions dropped by to discuss the game industry, and Wolf had his first birthday party.

Steve Cole worked on Hailing Frequencies, Communique #104, Captain's Log #49 Supplemental File, and the art for the Federation Master Starship Book (producing over 100 entirely new images never seen before). He also did an hour's work on Captain's Log #50, setting up the files and doing two pages. He also worked on the Captain's Log #49 FLAP (Finish like a Pro) list (table of contents, input guide, schedule, recent releases, SFBF, four medal pages, Gazetteer, F&E Q&A). 

Steven Petrick worked on inserting art into the Federation Master Starship Book and making Jean's fixes to it.

The Starlist Update Project moved forward with eight new entries.

Leanna kept orders and accounting up to date, and with Simone's help got Captain's Log #49, Captain's Log #49 Supplemental File, Federation Master Starship Book, and the two Federation Commander playtest packs added to the cart.

Mike kept orders going out and rebuilt the inventory.

Simone did website updates (adding the Captain's Log #49 material).

Jean worked on Hailing Frequencies, Communique #104, and the Captain's Log #49 Supplemental File. She also managed our page on Facebook (which is up to 2189 friends), managed our Twitter feed (109 followers), commanded the Rangers, dealt with the continuing spam assault on the BBS, managed the blog feed, proofread the Federation Master Starship Book, took care of customers, and did some marketing.
