    My wife, Mrs Sonne, is a postal worker. I asked her to keep her eyes open for suspicious activity and especially for mail from Russia.

    She cautioned me that in the US an Agent can get into trouble with Homeland Security for taking pictures of post office operations (basically anything inside the building or at the loading dock). She advises being careful.

    Mission parameters require only the front of the building.

    I got a question as well, for a long time now where I live most 'local' dedicated P.O.'s (local in a city-wide sense) have been removed and are now embedded in e.g. local book stores, grocery stores or similar (you can pick up and send off packages there and they have their own small storage place for packages). So do you want to know about these :p? There's only one "main" dedicated P.O. in the center of the city (The Hague) that I know of right now, but there are a lot of these smaller ones nowadays, I'm guessing 20 or more..!

    Both submissions I sent were small ones inside stores, and both were accepted, so I guess it's okay =)

    Some advise on OPSEC, Agents. When out in the AO, there are a few cover stories we can utilize for the time being. Pokemon Go, Ingress, and Layars are good cover stories to have while out in field. If you're unfamiliar with screen capturing via phone then here's the gist. Android users using operating system 4.0 and later press the down volume button and power button at the same time. There'll be an animation showing you've captured your screen. iPhone users press the power button and the home button at the same time.

    Stay safe out there, Agents.

    Another question, after uploading the pictures for a PO am I supposed to update the gdoc myself or will this be done by someone else after it is confirmed? I'm guessing the latter (could get pretty messy otherwise?).

    I update the Gdoc myself when I upload one, mostly to tell other people in the city which ones I did =)

    Much the same. Speaking of, tomorrow I'm considering cutting a path through western Vermont, since I'll probably have time and most of these little burgs only have the one post office.

    Ok, I left work early to do recon on multiple locations. 3 locations added

    I uploaded the photos to Nite 4 and here is a album if anyone is interested as well as a Live video


    This also activates level 2 , according to the archive. I can do two more cities easily if needed, Just let me know​

    Ooh, just checked my email. This is gonna be fun. May have a chance to do some recon at my local PO later today or tomorrow.

    I do have to second the cautions for this mission, however, especially in the USA. Photography in general tends to be looked upon as suspicious here, and doubly so when the subject is a government building not known for being a tourist attraction, like a post office.

    Americans: specializing in paranoia since 1776! ;)

    There are a few more post offices here and I'm going to get them tomorrow afternoon if it's not too late. I just want to check that's it's okay to upload them as I've already submitted one today.

    As a Cybertech I've made a perl script to help in the operation. The script parses the info in the intrusion map and prints the list of unlocked cities along with its level. It can be used from a linux shell, but if anyone wants to mod it, port it or the like, feel free to do so. The script is attached to this post inside a zip file.

    Oh man. Thank you so much. This is so much easier than doing it by hand in the gdoc as I've been doing, didn't even think to automate it...

    Well, the Gdoc has the bonus of us writing the exact PO we visited =P

    Yeah, but this is a good way to check for people who don't update the Gdoc. Speaking of which, I've gone through and updated the Gdoc!

    First, after a scouting mission through Montreal, I have to report a victim of this Operation : My umbrella died because of a sudden wind burst, may its death allow us to complete the mission.

    Secondly, I uploaded all my submissions here : http://imgur.com/a/bvsv2, and I noticed a lot of the POs has a weird wi-fi network around them. I've never seen those so it made me curious. Could these be part of one of the next steps of the operation ? Am I just being paranoid ? Are those the answer to life, the universe and everything ? Wait and see =)

    @Zerosh script needs the following stuff to be installed
    Unix operating system

    Ubuntu/Debian instructions
    1. Do apt-get update && apt-get upgrade -y && apt-get update install perl curl -y
    2. Download the script by running command wget http://workrelay.cloudapp.net/op_silverspear_status.pl && chmod +x op_silverspear_status.pl
    3. Then just do ./op_silverspear_status.pl and let it run

    Also code is here:
    #!/usr/bin/perl -w
    # Perl script to monitor the status of the global network
    # Op SILVERSPEAR -  Black Watchmen - 2016-08-16/20
    # Agt Zerosh
    use Switch;
    system('/usr/bin/curl -s http://intrusion.blackwatchmen.com/ -o intrusion_map.txt');
    open FILE, "<", "intrusion_map.txt" or die $!;
    $target = 0;
    $city = "";
    $level = 0;
    $signal = 0;
    $weight = 0;
    while (my $line = <FILE>) {
    #       case 9    { $city =  $& if $line =~ /(?i)[a-z .]+/ }
          case 9    { ($city) = $line =~ /(?i)'(.+)'/ }
          case 4    { $level++ if $line =~ /true,\n/; $weight=0.25 }
          case 3    { $level++ if $line =~ /true,\n/; $weight=0.5 }
          case 2    { $level++ if $line =~ /true,\n/; $weight=0.75 }
          case 1    {
        if ($line =~ /true*/){ $level++; $weight=1 }
        printf "%20s\tLevel $level\n", $city;
        $city = "";
        $level = 0;
        $signal += $weight;
        $weight = 0;
      if($line =~ /setMarker\(\n/){
        $target = 9;
    # print "# # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # #\n";
    # print "Esimated Signal Strength: $signal\%\n";
    # print "# # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # #\n";
    close FILE or die $!;
    exit 0;

    I'm not sure that script is working correctly. It seems to have added me as a town in Switzerland. :)

    No, that's my fault... I don't know why Switzerland keeps getting screwed up.

    Ah I see. It's okay. :)
    Also, I'm not responsible for adding the Swiss town so I just removed myself from that section.
