Custom Builds

Pricing for new customized computer builds naturally varies based on several factors, the most significant of which is the cost of the actual components.  Typically, it takes between one and three hours of labor at $70 per hour, depending upon the complexity of the build.  While the Buddy's Deals® 50% off discount applies to labor performed assembling and testing the components, it obviously does not apply to the cost of those components.  However, all components used during a build are charged at cost, with no extra fees or procurement charges whatsoever!  This will save you an average of about $400 or so, when compared to any non-clearance-priced machine from any of the major retailers such as Best Buy, Dell, HP/Compaq, or Gateway to name a few.  In addition, you machine will be custom tailored to suit your needs, so you will never have to immediately purchase extra memory or peripherals after you buy the computer!  So don't wait, click here to learn more or email or call to schedule your appointment today to get the computer you have always been wanting!

Data Recovery

Data recovery can be a very tricky business.  I would love to state that your computer knows well enough to protect your most cherished files, photos, videos, and other documents, but unfortunately, that is not at all the case.  Someone should really get on fixing that situation immediately.  In the meantime, if you have lost data, the good news is that it can be recovered, depending upon the type and amount of data, the amount of free space on the drive in question, and the amount of time and drive activity that thas passed since the data has gone missing.  Therefore, providing estimates for the amount of time it will take to fully recover all of your data is quite impossible, but the rate for doing so is still the same residential rate of $70 per hour and the Buddy's Deals® 50% off discount applies to all data recovery services!

So if you need data recovery work performed to an amazing degree of success, do not keep waiting around!  You owe it to your data to email, call or contact me to make an appointment and get the data back that you have been missing!

Web Design

Pricing for web design varies, but generally has three different tiers of service.  The lowest and least expensive tier is for those who want a simple, static page or pages hosted on a free web host of your choosing.  The second level is for those who want a more intricate site spanning many pages, designed with forms, javascript, AJAX/JSON, and the like.  The third and highest tier is for those who want a complete and comprehensive databased web application set developed, where pages are not static but rather generated interactively by a CGI script or script set written in your choice of languages for the web.  All tiers come with optional ongoing support and updates at an extremely reasonable rate, or you can either be tutored if necessary on how to update the sites yourself, or mechanisms can be added to interactive sites to update content automatically with no risk of compromising the integrity of the application design.

Web Page Design

Web Page Design is priced at $70 per hour, where about four normally designed pages can be written in one hour.  The Buddy's Deals® 50% off discount applies for all basic web design services, so be sure to email, call or contact me today to get started!

Enhanced Web Site Construction

Enhanced Web Site Construction is priced normally at $100 per hour, however for a limited time, the Buddy's Deals® 50% off discount applies for the hourly rate for Enhanced Web Site Construction.  If your project is on a budget, a set price can be negotiated in advance.  If in case you have not noticed, terms are extremely reasonable.  Hosting plans can vary, although most are completely free, so what are you waiting for?  Email, call or contact me today to set something up!

Interactive Databased Web Application Design

Complete Interactive Web Application Design utilizing SQL Databases (mySQL, PostgreSQL, msql, MSSQL Server, Oracle or others), CGI scripting (Perl, PHP, Ruby On Rails, Java, C++/C#, ASP .NET, and/or others), multiple user logins and authoring, fully interactive interfaces, SMTP integration, SSL, AJAX, CSS3, shopping carts, and anything else necessary is available for those who need the full gamut of the internet's capabilities.  Pricings for these services are project-based and vary based on the complexity of the application.  The Buddy's Deals® discount does not apply to Interactive Web Application Design services, although your project cost will certainly be lower than with any other web design company in Tucson.  Email, call or contact me today to find out more information.

Database Administration

Pricing for SQL development and database administration services will vary based upon the scope, size and granularity of the data being stored, but is somewhat similar to the amounts and the methods by which the amounts which are charged are arrived, for HCM!'s Interactive Web Application Design services.  You are encouraged to email, call or contact HCM! to find out more detailed pricing information, based upon your particular application(s).  The Buddy's Deals® discount does not apply to SQL development and database administration services.

Tutoring

Pricing for tutoring varies based upon the subject matter being taught.  For beginner computer instruction, like how to use a computer, how to access and search the internet, how to use email and other communications applications, and how to use basic applications such as Microsoft Word and Office, Photo Album software and the like, the rate for these services is $40 per hour.  For more complicated techniques and software like Photoshop or GIMP, CAD, basic WYSIWYG web editing software, and the like, the rate is $70 per hour.  For higher level computer instruction, including SQL training, networking, server administration, data and server security, and the like, the rate is negotiable, but will be at least $80 per hour.  The Buddy's Deals® 50% off discount applies to all tutoring services.  HCM! offers tutoring in other subjects not directly related to computers as well; please see Michael's Résumé for a (mostly) complete list of subjects with which he is proficient.

Server Security

For those individuals or businesses who want to be certain that their data is secure on their privately owned or hosted web server, HCM! will rigorously and thoroughly test your server against a huge range of possible malicious and accidental attacks on your server.  Because of the comprehensive nature of these tests, you will need to certify that you own the server at its IP address.  These tests are priced at a one-time fee of $500 per IP address tested.  The Buddy's Deals® discount does not apply to Server Security testing.
