DearWebby is actually Helmut Morscher, the CEO of Webby, inc.

Originally the "Tech Support Pits" were reports of the funniest tech support incidents, but over the years the column gradually shifted to answering tech support questions put forward by the readers of the Dear Webby Humor Letter.

This collection of computer and web advice was started partly because readers demanded an archive, and partly because some questions were asked again and again. Each page has a different day's Tech Support Pits column.

Have FUN!

Tech Support Pits:
From Dave=== Dear Webby I have about 15000 digital photos, all titled and arranged in folders. I also have a new computer. Is there any way to get the pictures, titles and folders into the new computer easily. The program I tried just put the pictures on the CD, nothing else. Thanks for your help. Dave S. Dear David The easiest way is to network the computers. Just get a $4.95 crossover cable and set up a home network. Then you can drag entire folders including their sub-folders over to the new machine. Setting up the home network is easy. Just go into the network set-up wizard and hit Enter a whole bunch of times. There is only very few questions that you have to actually answer. Have FUN! Dear Webby
======================================== Daily tip from Storing Paint Cans Before storing paint, put some paint on the top and side of the can so you can easily see what color it is. If the can is almost empty, transfer it to a smaller container since paint cans take up a lot of shelf space. If you may want to try to recreate the color in the future, write the color information on a piece of paper and tape it to the side of the paint can. Have FUN! DearWebby
