A Ground breaking ceremony conducted Thursday August 3th was a reminder of a time gone by. The ground breaking was for the West View Green House Homes project Members of West View’s administration decided to duplicate the ground breaking ceremony from 1964 by breaking the ground with mules. Just as in 1964 a team of mules broke ground. The Mules used to break ground Thursday are named Ruth and Rose and owned by Kenny Ball.
The event was themed in the old times complete with historical dress from the Administration of West View.
Here is a short video of Ruth and Rose breaking ground in West Plains MO.
We get this question all the time!
“Why does my website need security? We do not take anyone’s personal information or sell anything. We don’t need that.”
The simple truth is security is necessary for everything connected to the internet.
Hackers use reputable sites to distribute malware to unwary users. People who access the web trough old out dated browsers such as Internet Explorer are easily infected. Once infected the person’s computer can help hackers carry out their plans. This infected computer can be used for many functions such as helping a DDOS (Distributed Denial of Service attack). A DDOS is when a network of infected computers are used to simultaneously attack a target. This same method was used in the DDOS attack that brought down much of America’s internet in October 2016.(TheGuardian.com) This is one of the many examples that your company dose not want to contribute. There are other more common reason’s a hacker will infect a website, for instance distribution of pornographic links or infecting your website’s users with adware causing artificial boosting of SEO to malicious companys usually in China that do not even ship the products sold. The hacker can even use your website to install Keylogger software to steal Credit Card numbers from your clients even though they do not enter the Credit Card on your site. Keylogger software stays in wait on a computer system and when a user enters a series of numbers such as 16 digits in Master or Discover Cards, this information is then sent to the hacker. The hacker can use the cards or commonly will sell the number online for as little as one dollar.
We can go on and on about the importance of having a secure site and business even if you do not take or store personal information. One local site this month alone has received nearly 3200 failed attacks because of our protocols.
If you are interested in seeing a hackers perspective of your business online or even in your office, let us know. We need no other access other than your permission to test. We can then advise on how to seal up these holes in your security. It is our wish to help Ozarks Area business to become a digital fortress not a target for low level hackers. Let us help you.

When Ozark Action approached us there was a problem. Although they had a web developer build their site this web developer was rarely available to make needed updates. We enjoy helping local community services stay up and running but a new site was not in the budget. Ozark Action help those in need find help with all kinds of things like electric bills, heating, cooling, weatherization, community projects, housing, and head start programs. It was a shame to see that their web sites annual report was more than 2 years old. Also Ozark Action provides many jobs in the area, jobs that were impossible to post on their website. Enter Suit7, we kept the old site and found all source code files then brought their site up to date. Since then we are happy to say that anytime a update is needed one of the staff at Suit7 makes the required updates with in 48 hours. Ozark Action provides vital community services to our home area and we are very pleased with the opportunity to help keep their web site running and up to date.

Hummingbird-Hideaway.com is a mobile friendly SEO optimized website for a great resort on Norfork Lake. This project is the CMS project with a twist. Lou at Hummingbird Hideaway Resort on Norfork Lake is an avid fisherman. Lou fishes usually 5 days a week to help keep his guest “on the fish”. As part of the service he offers his guest and the Norfork Lake in general is his Fishing Report. Lou shares his fishing expertise with any one reading his report. Lou had been posting his Fishing Report in Google Blogger and wanted to keep posting in his blog but also wanted his Fishing Report on his website, with out posting twice. For a solution we whipped up a quick data scraper that would read the text and pictures from his Google Blogger site and post the information on the new website, keeping the colors and style of his website, Lou’s website now included his Fishing Report. This scraper allowed Lou to post his fishing report one time and in the manner that he was used to posting. Along with a new vectorized logo and all the content Lou required for his new mobile friendly website the new site was launched. It was a pleasure working with Lou from Hummingbird Hideaway Resort on the beautiful Norfork Lake in Arkansas. We would recommend if you are looking for a great place to stay and fish, or have a family gathering; check out Hummingbird Hideaway, you will love your stay.
FoutBoatDock.com was another fun project. Renee from Fouts was needing a new website but was holding off because of the prices she had been presented by our competitors in the Mountain Home AR area. We were camping near Fouts, our favorite arm of the lake, and stopped in to Fout Boat Dock to fuel up and get some ice cream for the kids. Through conversation Renee discovered that we worked for a web development and programming company. We didn’t have any business cards on us at the time but Renee would not let us leave without writing down our phone number because of the “ballpark” pricing that was discussed. Within a month the new FoutBoatDock.com was launched and for about one third the price of the competitive bid. Our low overhead and virtual offices allow Suit7’s developers to offer lower prices by focusing our time and talents providing great service and programming for our customers. We loved working on this project and of course it required some lake time “work” 🙂 for pictures and video and we LOVE Norfork Lake. In less than a month and along with some complementary social media coaching Renee had her new website mobile friendly website up and running and was very pleased. If you are looking for the “Quiet Arm of the Lake” head up to Fout Boat Dock they have everything you need for a day on the lake. They also have good pricing for boat and wave runner rentals, even a bathroom right on the dock.
