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!

05/09/04: Which Hotels ?

Tech Support Pits:
From Alice=== Dear Webby I'm sure you have sampled enough good and bad hotels on your travels and can tell us which ones to choose and which ones to avoid. Any tips and tricks would be appreciated! Thanks Alice Dear Alice I used to recommend Best Western, mainly because you could count on free local calls and reasonable Internet accessibility. However, then I found that some of them, like the Goldrush Inn in Whitehorse, Yukon, knock you off the line every few minutes and charge you a 50 cent per call. And ALL Best Western hotels that I have visited over the years have used furniture that is absolutely unsuitable for laptop using business travellers. I have found a better alternative: Holiday Inn Express. They have two phone lines per room plus many of them already have free high speed Internet access. The High Speed Internet connection in Holiday Inn Express hotels WORKS. If your laptop is used for a high speed connection at home, then all you do is plug in the cable that is already on the table, turn on the laptop, open the browser, click Accept (that you won't spam or spread child porno or anything similarly atrocious), and you are on-line and ready to work at high speed. For their connectivity solution I recommend them very highly. Their prices are reasonable, the hotels are clean and nicely decorated, and staff is friendly. You can book in advance at and then check in late without any hassle. If they could lower their tables 8 inches (20 cm), then Holiday Inn Express would be perfect. Have FUN Dear Webby
