The face of terrorism.

It’s the run of the mill day to day that’s sometimes the hardest to take. You wouldn’t believe just how dull cataloging photographs and auditing ammo expenditure can be. Think that field agents spend their time typing up reports? Think again. No, Agents swan around all suited and booted trying to out suave one another, whilst back at the office a diligent team of administrative agents tries to make sense of their martini soaked inebriated hand written notes. Ian flaming has a lot to answer for I can tell you. 

 So what do I do?  I am what the service calls a ferret, a select group of individuals entrusted to run the errands that field agents deem beneath them, and with which the other tech departments can’t be trusted. Now, that may sound harsh, but techies aren’t like you or I, they don’t live it the real world, no, really they don’t.

Take Neil for instance, Neil is a class 3 photo analyst, who got all super excited about our new facial recognition software. But how do you test a state of the art integrated system designed for anti terrorist surveillance? Why not upload a known image, say your own face, and then see if the software can find you in a crowded environment, an office for example. Why not use our own office? That way you wouldn’t even have to leave the building, not forgetting that it even has its own linked in C.C.T.V. system, bonus! 

The first thing we knew about it was when the Special Forces response team tasered him in the foyer. And when Met officers tasered him outside Paddington station, and again as he left New Scotland Yard. I say left, he was at least 50 yard down the street when they swooped; no taser this time, just good old pepper spray and a rugby tackle. I must say it is reassuring to know those Met boys are really on message with all the trouble today. Neil is also now on message and recovering nicely, apparently the limp will hardly be noticeable.

    1. I am using go daddy as my domain host, with WordPress plug-ins’ and because I am old school and am ever hopeful of finding a publisher, I keep a hard copy of everything I write.

  1. fantastic publish, very informative. I wonder
    why the other experts of this sector don’t realize this. You must proceed
    your writing. I’m confident, you have a huge readers’ base
    already!

  2. I do not even know how I finished up here, but I believed this put up was once good.
    I do not realize who you are but definitely you’re going to a well-known blogger should you
    are not already. Cheers!

  3. Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot about this,
    like you wrote the book in it or something.
    I think that you can do with some pics to drive the message home a little bit, but other
    than that, this is magnificent blog. A great read. I’ll definitely be back.

    1. Hi thanks for the feedback. With regard to my source, all i can say is that they have worked in a govenment funded organisation for tne past thirty years dealing with confidental information on a daily basis. They started on tne shopfloor, so to speak, and worked their way up to run their own department. I am certain that what they tell me is true,but as you can understand is difficult to verify, i wish i could say more but……

  5. I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the layout of your site?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little
    more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1
    or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?

    1. Thank you for the feed back, you could say that I’m still finding my feed so to speak. I had this idea for a story that wouldn’t exactly fit into a novel formate. I decided on a weekly blog, giving readers an insight into the world of secret service admin. Hopefully it will generate enough interest that I will be able to get it published in one volume.

      once again thanks for reading, enjoy.

  6. Heya! I know this is sort of off-topic however
    I had to ask. Does running a well-established blog like yours take a massive amount work?

    I am completely new to writing a blog however I do write in my journal everyday.
    I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my own experience and views online.
    Please let me know if you have any kind of suggestions or tips for
    new aspiring blog owners. Thankyou!

    1. Hi, i would say write about what interests you and enjoy it. I had this idea that i didn’t think would fit in to the novel format, it may however be more enjoyable in bite size chunks so to speak, this being the result.
      I write everyday old school pen and ink in a note book, i consider this my first rough edit, i do write directly on the screen but not often. I then use my notes to help me complete the post. This is actually a short proecess than it sounds as i carry my notebook everywhere. I work up two complete posts and publishing one a week. If the truth be told, there is no right or wrong way to do this, just enjoy yourself.

  7. Diies sind wirklich wirklic reat zu Blogging.

    Dinge hier Sie habwn enige angednehm berührt.
    Jedde Art unnd Weise haltesn Wrinting.

    1. Hi, no twitter account yet, there is a facebook page for a mostly secret service, i post weekly on the blog and update the facebook page with a url link to the blog. Glad thay you’re enjoying.

  8. I also havefacebook page for a mostly secret service , i post weekly on the blog and update the facebook page with a url link to the post. Thanks for your kind words , more to come , enjoy.

  9. Fantastic beat ! I wish to apprentice at the same time as you amend your site,
    how can i subscribe for a weblog site? The account helped me
    a appropriate deal. I were a little bit familiar of this your
    broadcast offered bright transparent idea

    1. I post each week, i also have a facebook page with the same name – a mostly secret service. I post on fb with a link to the blog page, i hope this help.

  10. Ӏ know this if off topіc but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is needed tߋ ɡet setup?
    I’m assuming haѵing a blog like yours would cost a pretty
    penny? I’m not very web smɑrt so I’m not 100% certain. Ꭺny
    recommendations or advice would be greatly apprеciatеd.
    Thanks

    1. WordPress provide free hosting byt this may have some restrictions with regard to your business model, i found ‘go daddy’ to be easy and affordable , i have resisted the url with them which again is something you may wish to think about.

    1. No problem at all, hope you enjoyed them so far, more to come, i hsve a Facebook page with the same name, and a twitter account, i post on both when I update with a new episode, about one a week.

  11. Hi , iam based in uk where our laws around personal data are nuts ! By putting a subscribe button i would be collecting ‘data’ and therefore need a https rather than a http, cant aford it yet, however all is not lost, i have a Twitter count and facebook page under the same name, i post on both once ive up loaded a new blog post.

  12. Follow on facebook at amostlysecretservice and twitter at a mostly secret service @mostlysecret
    I post weekly.

  13. Hey would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a hard time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something
    unique. P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    1. Hi, go daddy hosts my site and the have a wordpress package, i am not that technically minded, so getting everything in one place was ideal. The design is one of wordpresses off the shelf designs, i am gen x , they have designes that may appeal to younger folks, but this seemed to do all i wanted.
