This Week at ADB, Inc., 29 May - 4 June 2016

Steve Cole reports:

This was the week we shipped mail orders for Captain's Log #51, Federation & Empire Minor Empires, and A Call to Arms: Star FLeet 1.2-Deluxe. The design team wrapped up their work on those products and began serious work on the next round. Much of the week was spent on the transition to the new shopping cart, as there a thousand items to check and thousands of links to change to the new cart. We worked straight thought Memorial Day because of the massive workload of three new product shipments and the 31 May deadline to move the shopping cart. We released a Star Fleet Alert about the new cart.



Steve Cole finished Communique #126, Hailing Frequencies, and the FLAP list for the new products (Gazetteer, FC Ship Chart, FC Scenario Index, large print edition). He completed all of the personal pages for the Wall of Honor done but only the first few of the 40 multiple-person pages. He wrote some blogs and did everything for Communique. He got to start work on Federation Admiral.

Steven Petrick worked on Captain's Log #52, the Romulan Master Starship Book, and other projects.

Leanna shipped orders for the new products and worked on the new shopping cart.

Mike kept orders going out and rebuilt the inventory.

Simone did website updates and some graphics, but spent most of her time on the new shopping cart. She did get the FLAP stuff uploaded and 12 Wall of Honor pages, but lacks over 60 more pages there.

Jean worked on the shopping cart, managed our page on Facebook (which is up to 3,116 friends), managed our Twitter feed (190 followers), commanded the Rangers, dealt with the continuing spam assault on the BBS, managed the blog feed, proofread Communique #126, took care of customers, and did some marketing.
