AGM Property Management's New Site Goes Live

November 20, 2008

Screenshot of AGM Property Management Site Design

Bitsculptor recently finished a redesign and development project for AGM Property Management ( located in Lakeport, California and serving all of Lake County.

The previous version of the site was all hardcoded HTML pages which meant that anytime AGM wanted to make changes they had to contact their webmaster to do so. The new site has a password protected administration area where AGM can manage the rental properties that show up on the site. We also created the ability for users to register for accounts which they can then use to apply for rentals online. The rentals are easy to find using the search tools or the custom Google Maps integration which shows the exact location of specific rentals around the lake.

One the design side we were provided with existing branding and used this to create a bold, easy to use look and feel. This includes a navigation bar that stands out and is easy to understand as well as rounded corners on the site pages to complement the curve of the shooting star in the logo.

Beauty and functionality are the hallmarks of Bitsculptor web sites. The new AGM Property Management site is a great example of these two ideas working together. Hooray for us!

Riviera West Site Goes Live

October 24, 2008

Screenshot of Riviera West
Riviera West is an established neighborhood  in Lake County, California that came to Bitsculptor looking for a web presence for their homeowners association.

The design of the site was created to be warm and inviting while being decidedly "Lake County." This was accomplished through the use of color and strong imagery. The arch along the top of the site resulted from spending a fair amount of time with the logo provided by the association. The logo is actually just a photo of the neighborhood's entry sign which Bitsculptor Photoshopped into something usable.

All of the pages on the site are editable using Bitsculptor's proprietary secure backend tools. This allows the Association to keep the content current thereby making the site a valuable resource for both current and potential residents. As with most homeowners associations there's a lot of documents and rules that need to be readily available to people. To this end, we also included a prominent area where the site administrators can upload documents and sort them into categories as they choose.

Functional beauty was the target and we'd like to think we hit a bullseye.

Principle Property Management, located in Peoria, IL, came to us looking for web site design and development.

We also developed backend tools enabling the Principle Property staff to manage all of their rental listings.

The design was based around their existing logo and their desire to use earth tone colors. We always try to make our design solutions integrate well with company branding and the Principle Property web site was no exception.

Lakeport Chamber Site Goes Live

July 16, 2008

Lakeport Chamber Screenshot

Bitsculptor recently completed the redesign and development of the Lakeport Chamber of Commerce web site at

The site has quite a few different areas of content and the design team decided that usability would be improved by using a distinct color for each area. These can be seen by rolling over the main navigation items. Also included in the new design is a dynamic Flash image fader on the home page which allows the Chamber site administrators to upload new highlighted events and news graphics using Bitsculptor's proprietary secure backend administration tools.

Using these backend tools, administrators can edit all of the page level content on the site as well as manage and send email newsletters. The benefit of using these administration tools is that all of the site management can be done in house by Chamber staff without needing to come back to Bitsculptor everytime they need something changed. Not only is this an easier solution, it also saves the Chamber money in the long run.

A great new look along with useful and secure administration tools ensure the usefulness of the new Chamber site for years to come.

Microsoft Exchange Hosting Service Announced

July 1, 2008

We are happy to announce our new Microsoft Exchange Hosting Service.

Microsoft Exchange has been used for years by many business customers who are looking for more functionality than standard "POP" mail provides (Microsoft Exchange allows your office to share your calendar and contacts list, among other things).

Until now, many of our customers were forced to host an Exchange server in-house in order to have this functionality. This is a fairly expensive (and risky) proposition since you have to pay for IT staff, server hardware and software, and run the risk of server downtime and lost email.

Our new Exchange Hosting Service is competitively-priced to reduce your overall Exchange Hosting costs, while improving reliability.

Victorian Village Site Goes Live

June 18, 2008

Victorian Village Screenshot

Bitsculptor recently completed the web site for Victorian Village, a new development of homes in Lake County, California. The web site can be found at

The homes in Victorian Village have all been built in the Victorian style which, along with its lake views and lake frontage, make the development truly one of a kind in Lake County.

Bitsculptor wanted to allow the unique architecture to take center stage. To this end, a muted dark background was used along with an elegant but simple navigation bar. This allows for the quality of the photographs to shine through.

The site employs a registration system which allows the REALTOR's involved in selling the homes to capture user's contact information in exchange for more detailed information on the homes.

Another feature is a backend news update tool which allows the Victorian Village administrators to login and add/edit/delete news as they see fit. These news items are then displayed on the site keeping the content fresh and applicable.

Yahoo continues to deliver (poor email service, that is!) More information on 451 errors...

April 9, 2008

Once again, Yahoo is returning 451 errors when our customers send email to email addresses. The error message looks something like "451 Message temporarily deferred - 4.16.50." You may also see "Messages from temporarily deferred due to user complaints -"

This seems to happen every few months for no good reason, and any attempts to contact Yahoo support to resolve the issue fall on deaf ears.

What this means for our email hosting customers is that messages to addresses are often delayed or not delivered at all. Yahoo's justification for this is that our mail server is sending spam, but since we control our server tightly and know what goes in and out of it, we know that is not the case.

One factor possibly affecting Yahoo's email service is the recent layoffs of thousands of workers. A quick search on Google shows that this is a widespread issue. It is only a matter of time before Yahoo loses a significant number of email users due to their lack of consistent email delivery.

At BitSculptor, we've been advising our customers who use Yahoo email services to switch to a better service such as Gmail or Hotmail.  Both of these services offer a better product for the same great price (free).

Play Up Goes Live

Play Up Logo and ScreenshotBitSculptor has completed the development of the Play Up fundraiser web site, located at

Play Up is a fundraiser for the southern Oregon Fellowship of Christian Athletes and Athletes in Action non-profits. The event will feature Christian recording artist Rebecca St. James as well as  NFL kicker, and local product, Josh Bidwell of the Tampa Bay Bucs.

The site saw many changes throughout the development process. The domain name and all graphics had to change when the original headliner and professional athlete combo dropped out due to changed circumstances. While these changes may have been frustrating for the event planners we were able to make the changes quickly and effectively in order to get the site up with plenty of time before the event.

The Play Up site also includes a backend News tool for the FCA staff to use in order to keep people up to date on the upcoming event.
