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 Beth=== Dear Webby, My mail program is getting slower by the day, it seems. How do I fix that? Beth Dear Beth First clean out your IN mailbox. It should only have today's unread mail in it. (If you tell me I should do what I preach, you can get your own coffee!) While that may not be practical or possible, consider it a goal to strive towards. Move mail immediately, after glancing at it, to mailboxes that you name as: Urgent Soon Rainy-day Tips Ideas Friends Family Second, shorten your spam blacklist, or dump it. Spammers nowadays just forge their sending addresses anyway and never use the same one twice, so why bother with a huge blacklist? Just set the blacklist ot "age off" in five days. Have FUN Dear Webby
