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.

that computer use is a privilege, that can be cut at any
time, is the most effective.
Kids will sneak a peek at taboo stuff anyway, just like
you did. The general idea is to not make such a big
fuss about it that it turns into an obsession.
