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 Randy=== Dear Webby, What is the difference between Quattro 8 and 11 ? Is is worth the huge difference in price? Dear Randy I doubt that you would notice the difference, except in price. They have run out of features to add a long time ago, so this year's new feature was EXCEL Help ! Yes, help for their competitor's spreadsheet, to trick Excel into doing the same stuff that Quattro has been doing all along. Aside from that, there are some very minor touch-ups. For example the HTML Quattro writes when you save a spread sheet as a web page, is a bit cleaner now. It worked fine before, but now the source code looks a bit tidier. Also, integration of spreadsheets into Word and WordPerfec documents is a hair smoother than it was. Especially if you are on a budget, get the older version for $5 and get the current version next year. Have FUN! DearWebby
