We will probably not call such projects Module Prime Beta but Final Frontier.

Guys, this isn't going to happen until I retire. That looks to be 2013. By then, we may have moved to a model of some sort of e-zine.


Wait, you're working 2 full time jobs?

Very Happy Working two full-time jobs? Ummmmmm... here's the story.

My RL job (the one that keeps the lights on and the furkids and me fed) is as a librarian. That's the 8-5 or 6 or 7 one. Depends on what needs doing.

Before I get to work, I have usually posted the blog for the day, done my morning report on the status of the BBS, posted something on our page on Facebook, and dealt with any problems on the BBS. (That is where the "WebMom" nickname comes from -- I'm the moderator/admin/troubleshooter there.)

When I get home from the RL job, I handle any problems that may have come up (email, here, BBS, IM, wherever), deal with our page on FB, proofread/edit as needed, and usually go to bed about midnight. Weekends, I do a bit of shopping for food (for me and the furkids) and then usually work on ADB, Inc. stuff.

What I do for ADB:
Proofread nearly everything (including most books, the newsletters, the Communiques, Star Fleet Alerts, and anything SVC asks me to read)
Edit the RPG line
Take care of the BBS (moderate, deal with flamewars, clean out topics as needed, etc.)
Take care of our page on Facebook (SVC said I thought of it, so it is "my baby")
Help with marketing and continue to learn from SVC and Leanna regarding that
Write the stray scenario (the Olivette Roche Files are here in ADB East as are the newly discovered Michelle Less "The Pilot-Prince, His Life and Times Complete Collected Edition with Hundreds of Bonus Features (Dilithium Version)" trivideo set.
Write the stray CL input guide (I'm running through punctuation, currently.)
Run the booth at the Origins Game Fair
Ride the bus to Amarillo after Christmas and spend a week working on a project. (Oh yes, and ride the bus back so I can do the RL job.)
(The last two are my "big" vacations!)

While I am part of the "Command Staff", SVC also counts me as a volunteer.

It may look like a job, but it is a great deal of fun most days. Very Happy I wouldn't trade it for anything.

Well, it's a small quadrant. I'm not a librarian, but I work as the computer guy in an academic library...

Also, based on the "output" of what marketing and editing work we see done, it does seems like you're doing the ADB stuff full time. Anyway, I appreciate it, and I know others do too...

THANK YOU!

I would imagine that Jean gets close to 40 hours on ADB per week.

Of course, I own ADB and I work 70+ hours per week. Welcome to small business america.
