divider About us...

Black Pearl Computing Ltd.
was formed in 1987 to meet the computer support needs of individuals, home-based and small business, as well as corporate, education and government clients.

We provide cross-platform solutions for Macintosh, Windows and Linux/Unix, as well as Windows-only and Macintosh-only projects. With 20 years experience, we tend to specialize on the Macintosh platform, however many of our skills carry across to other platforms (eg. javascript, SQL, C, C++, Filemaker Pro).

Black Pearl Computing Ltd. provides a wide range of computer support services, including:

  • Web site design and programming (html, javascript, php, java, c and c++, XML)

  • Web site and application support and hosting (MySQL and FilemakerPro databases, FirstClass, ftp, secure web/ecommerce servers, email, listservers, autoresponders, site search engines, web site promotions, etc.).

  • The design, installation, maintenance, retrofitting and troubleshooting of computer networks and intranets including WiLANs, firewalls, routers and other netowrk infrastructure.

  • Custom programming of applications, databases (SQL, Filemaker Pro), data conversion, utilities, cgi's and acgi's.

  • Design, specification and programming of home automation control systems. [A recent project was the automation of a new 16,000 square foot mansion in Saanichton, BC.]

  • Training - one-on-one and group training available for Filemaker Pro, Microsoft Excel, Macintosh Operating systems (OS 9 and OSX), applescript, data management.

  • Providing support to small and mid-sized businesses, getting them up and running on the Internet in a cost effective and logical way, providing real support and well thought out advice about the best use of limited technology dollars.
