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 Britta=== Dear Webby I have a 5 button wireless Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer mouse like you suggested, and have been quite happy with it for about a year. Now all of a sudden, instead of the instant and crisp mouse action, the cursor is sluggish, the buttons don't always work or require extra clicks. It's not the batteries, even though it acts like the batteries were near dead.The problem seems to be the desk, because when I get too frustrated and run the mouse on my leg, it works just fine. I cleaned the desk, but that did not make any difference. Help! Britta Dear Britta Well, naturally your legs are a lot more attractive than your desk, but that is not the problem. Look for the wireless transceiver for the mouse. It has fallen down behind the computer, or gotten nudged behind a telephone, or a metal coffee cup or beer can. Just take some double-sided adhesive tape and stick it underneath or to the side of the monitor, so that it has a clear and unobstructed view of the area where you normally use the mouse. It will instantly work fine again. Have FUN Dear Webby
