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 Ron=== Dear Webby, My printer went down, an Epson C-80 about three years old. I found it is just as expensive to repair it as to purchase a new one. I do no business on my computer, write a letter or two occasionally, make labels for CD's, print some pictures occasionally. Since I purchased my Epson I have become disabled and find myself on a fixed income. What kind of printer would you reccommend for my general use. I would like to keep it at about $100.00 to no more than $130.00 or so. Hope you can help me out here. Ron. R, Dear Ron If you don't print much, then ink prices are not a big concern. In that case you could get a $30 Lexmark printer. The funny thing about that printer is that the ink cartridges are twice as expensive as the printer. ($30.5 black + $33.5 color) HP has printers from $50 and up: Because we use ONE printer for the entire office, we use an HP 3-in-one (Scanner, Printer, Copier) that has really easy to refill cartridges. It's over 3 years old now and still chugging away as reliably as on day 1. Have FUN Dear Webby
