This Week at ADB, Inc., 7-13 July 2019

Steve Cole reports:

This was a week of steady work on current projects. Jean and Leanna have decreed that we must finish the "five easy pieces" (Gorn Master Starship Book, A Call to Arms: Star Fleet Book Two, the GURPS Prime Directive revision, Star Fleet Universe Index, and Merchants of the Federation) before starting other projects, but noted that work needed to continue on reducing the BBS bloat. (It is down from 202,000 to 135,000 thanks to sterling work by Ryan Opel, Chuck Strong, Steven Petrick, Howard Bampton, and Steve Cole.) We sent out the newsletters on 12 July (to fit Samantha┬╣s schedule).

The Starlist Update Project moved forward with two new entries, 300 spams, and three updates.

Steve Cole worked on the Captain's Log #53 FLAP list, newsletters, art for the Gorn Master Starship Book, Shapeways, BBS reduction, and other projects. He caught up on three months of backlog for the "My Day" blog.

Steven Petrick worked on Star Fleet Battles updates, quality control assembly and shipping, the Tholian Master Starship Book, and the Gorn Master Starship Book.

Leanna kept orders and accounting up to date.

Mike kept orders going out and rebuilt the inventory.

Samantha did website updates, sent out the newsletters, and did some graphics.

Wolf guarded the office, chasing away a Bohemiclavulus.

Jean worked on the Captain's Log #53 FLAP list, managed our page on Facebook (4,115 friends), uploaded ships to Shapeways (releasing 67 items), managed our Twitter feed (287 followers), commanded the Rangers, dealt with the continuing spam assault on the BBS, managed the blog feed, proofread the newsletters, took care of customers, and did some marketing.

This Lyran Forest Lion Heavy Dreadnought is one of the ships added to our shop on Shapeways.
