This Week at ADB, Inc., 11-17 January 2015

Steve Cole reports:

This was a week of steady work on new projects. The weather this week was cold at first but warmed up nicely by Thursday. The spam storm mostly remained at something under 200 per day.

We received a shipment of 3,700 Starline 2400 ships and 300 Starline 2500 ships. Steve Cole, Steve Petrick, and Mike Sparks spent three entire days doing quality control. Steve Cole trained Jean Sexton on the task so that in future he could work designing new products instead of doing QC on minis.

Steve Cole tried to work on the Captain's Log #50 fiction story but made virtually no progress. He did find time to review a Prime Directive adventure, update the chain of command chart, guide the development of Star Fleet Battles Module X2, work on some other parts of Captain's Log #50, and conceptualize a new Star Fleet Universe history book project. He spent an entire day with his new doctor who said that it was time for him to take better care of his health. SVC and Jean renewed a project to update the Capitalization Guide Stylebook to the Damascus Road edition.

Steven Petrick worked on miniatures, Captain's Log #50, and the Klingon Master Starship Book.
The Starline 2500 project remains deadlocked waiting on molds to be made by a company that doesn't care if they do their work or not.

The Starlist Update Project moved forward with two new entries and an updates.

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 Starline miniatures, managed our page on Facebook (which is up to 2472 friends), managed our Twitter feed (128 followers), commanded the Rangers, dealt with the continuing spam assault on the BBS, managed the blog feed, proofread Glory of the Empire so it can become a Kindle book, took care of customers, and did some marketing.
