This Week at ADB, Inc., 11-17 August 2019

Steve Cole reports:

This was a week of steady work on current projects. We continue to collect reports on the Gorn Master Starship Book (easy piece #1) and Merchants of the Federation (easy piece #2). We have been hunting down details for the Star Fleet Index (easy piece #3). After some file translation problems were resolved, we began making serious progress on A Call to Arms: Star Fleet Book 2 (easy piece #4). Jean finished the complete revision of the GURPS Prime Directive core rulebook (easy piece #5) but there are numerous checks, edits, and nitpicks to go before it is ready for Steve Jackson Games.

We released Hailing Frequencies and Communique #164 on the 13th.

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

Steve Cole worked on Captain's Log #54, blogs, Shapeways, the new Federation corvette, cleaning hundreds of posts from the BBS while processing dozens of proposals, newsletters, and other projects.

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

The two Steves reviewed Jean's work on the GURPS Prime Directive revision and declared it to be of superior quality.

Leanna kept orders and accounting up to date.

Mike kept orders going out and rebuilt the inventory.

Samantha did website updates and some graphics.

Wolf guarded the office, chasing away an Adratiklit.

Jean worked on the GURPS Prime Directive revision and Hailing Frequencies, managed our page on Facebook (which is up to 4,131 friends), managed our Twitter feed (291 followers), commanded the Rangers, dealt with the continuing spam assault on the BBS, managed the blog feed, proofread Communique #164, took care of customers, and did some marketing.
