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 Joyce=== Dear Webby, I see today that Steve asked about saving a specific power point document. A friend sent me an e-mail yesterday with an attachment I couldn't open. I had it do the search and it came back: FILE TYPE: powerpoint document file FILE EXTENSION: pps DESCRIPTION: this document is a powerpoint presentation. (software or information available at: microsoft powerpoint). I bought this machine only a month ago with windows xp installed. I assumed everything I would need would already be installed. Since I don't seem to have this powerpoint thing, is there any other way to open this type of attachment? Thanks for your help. Joyce Dear Joyce The main reason, that the PowerPoint viewer is not included, is because PowerPoint has gone out of style many years ago. However, because there are still a few fogies around, who think they are too old to learn HTML, and who use it to make simple slide shows, Microsoft still has the viewer for PowerPoint available for downloading. It is located way back in their dusty archives at: Power Point Viewer Have FUN Dear Webby
