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 Scott=== Dear Webby, The spam in my mail is increasing steadily. Aren't those fancy new laws supposed to stop the spam? And how do people like you, who can't just keep changing their address cope with it? Scott Dear Scott Those laws are only protecting spammers and benefitting some lawyers, but they don't affect the quantity of spam that shows up in your mailbox any more, than if you were praying to a fire hydrant. I use MailWasher to hide the spam from me. Here you see a weeks worth of stats from my MailWasher: Green is what is sent to me, Red is what is dumped by MailWasher, Blue is what is left over for me to actually see and answer. You can get MailWasher by clicking on the FireTrust Mailwasher button on the left. I would hightly recommend that you get it, and get comfortable with it. Get used to making filters to supplement what it already does on it's own. And do that now, while your spam load is still small, because it WILL get worse. Have FUN! DearWebby
