Customer Spotlight : Max's Service

May 18, 2015, 12:00 am

Max's Service

If you are driving downtown on a weekday morning, it's hard not to see a Max's Service truck out for delivery. A household name for over 60 years, Max's service has been a staple in the Traverse City community, selling and servicing appliances. 

We are excited to announce the official launch of the new Max's Services website. What an amazing staff to work with, especially owner Jeff Owens. 

After sifting through dozens of thank you cards Max's Service had received in the past six months, we included some testimonials in the website, which is proof that Max's Service is the best choice over the big box stores.

Congratulations to Grand Traverse Academy!

Grand Traverse Academy Logo

In April, we asked for your nominations and votes and we narrowed the pool down to three amazing nonprofits in our community for our website giveaway. 

Our panel of judges deliberated and chose to donate a complete custom-designed website and two years free hosting to The Grand Traverse Academy. We are thrilled to be giving back to our community in this way and are excited about working with faculty and students to create an amazing online presence. 

Hopefully we inspire some students to continue interest in the growing technology field!



North Mitten Half Marathon & 10K

May 15, 2015, 12:00 am

North Mitten Half & 10K

Generally, I run in a few 5K races every year, but this year I'm taking on a new challenge of running a 10K race or just over 6 miles. 

I have to admit, I have NEVER consecutively run 6 miles before in my life but, I will this year!

I'll be participating in the North Mitten 10K happening May 24th at Crystal Mountain Resort. The North Mitten route consists of primarily flat, open trails on Crystal Mountain property and will not climb the mountain (thankfully)!

I'm really excited to participate in this race and encourage everyone to join me while spots are still open. The event will cap at 500 registrants. 

Prices

May 1-23, 2015: $55

Suttons Bay Floatilla is BACK

May 13, 2015, 12:00 am

A Northern Michigan favorite is back for 2015, the Suttons Bay Floatilla! 

For those of you who aren't familiar with Floatilla, it's an awesome water event which takes place on Grand Traverse Bay. Participants bring kayaks and canoes and form a huge conglomerate of floating boats in attempt to break the Guinness World Book record.

The event has taken place in the past in 2012 & 2013. In 2013 Suttons Bay secured the world record. In 2014, the event was skipped and the world record was set in Upstate New York with  a number of 3,150.

This year, The Suttons Bay Floatilla hopes to have more than 3,151 kayaks and canoes registered by September 5th.

Security Issues With Open Source Websites

March 10, 2015, 12:00 am

It is very common in our industry for an open source CMS (content management system) to be used when building a website. Popular ones include WordPress, Drupal and Joomla and many others.

There are several down sides from a security standpoint to the open source model which is why Byte Productions chooses not to build websites using these platforms.
