Housekeeping Announcements, Spring 2020

By , on

Good morning, ladies and gentlemen. I want to make a few housekeeping announcements, updates, et cetera. The picture of guns has nothing to do with this post, just a cool pic that (hopefully) entices you to open this post.


First, in light of coronavirus/COVID-19 I am pretty much locked down at the farm. A lot of you are likely working from home. With that in mind, I am going to do everything I can over the next few weeks to keep the articles coming. Not only that, I’m going to try to step it up and give you 4-6 articles a week. I have some very cool articles coming, so stay tuned.

If you look at my archive you will also notice some articles appearing from 2015 on. I am stealing some content from one of my old sites to share with you here. This isn’t a replacement for new writing – I’ll do my best to keep up with 4-6 new articles per week, as well.

If you have article suggestions, questions that I could answer as articles, etc. – feel free to fire away! I enjoy getting your questions (and hearing from the audience in general) so don’t be a stranger.

Book: Digital Self Defense

My new book, Digital Self-Defense is finished and in post-production. It should be coming to you in a a couple of weeks – I’ll definitely let you know when it’s available. If you are stuck at home, this would be the perfect time to hone some of your digital tradecraft. This book will also be available in digital form, for free for some Patreon subscribers (see below).

Email List

At the suggestion of my buddy Aaron from Integrated Skills Group, I have setup an email sign-up. I did a great deal of hunting to find something that lets me control your data (most of these things just pass your stuff along to a third-party, like Google).  This product is a little more heavy-duty and complicated than I expected, so it’s going to take some time before emails actually start rolling out regularly. Expect an email-ND or two in the meantime (apologies in advance!). Once emails are rolling, I promise not to inundate you with junk.


Swift/Silent/Deadly now has a live Patreon page. If you like what you find on this site, I ask that you support it. Creating the articles you see here takes a tremendous amount of my time and energy. Contributing via Patreon will help the site remain viable for a long time to come. And a huge “thank you” to those of you who are already Patrons!

There is a caveat: if you can’t afford to do so, please don’t spend your money here. I want to feel good about any money that Patreon brings in, and I would never ask you to spend money you don’t have or can’t afford. If you can’t afford to donate but still want to help out, feel free to tell a friend about the site, share an article with someone, or send in your moral support.

Parting Shot

The first six months of running this site have been very enjoyable. It is incredibly humbling that so many of you have signed up for email alerts, and that some of you have chose to donate to the site. I appreciate you guys coming along for the ride, so thank you!
