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 Rosanna=== Dear Webby, I received some investment advice in the email that warned that the US dollar has fallen to an all-time low against the Euro and that this is the time to "to take advantage of the opportunities the Euro has to offer. " Does that make sense to you? Rosanna Dear Rosanna No, of course not. You should not believe a word you read in spam. That's just moron bait. The dollar has been pushed down deliberately for two reasons: 1) to try and shake loose the Chinese Yuan that is worth less than a peso but is artificially pegged by the Chinese government to be traded at equal to the US $. So the Yuan is hanging on like a blood sucking parasite, but it is rather doubtful that it will change to free trading based on it's own actual value (near the Peso). The most that can be hoped for is that they will latch on to another currency. That won't happen until the US $ trades below the Canadian $. It will take some time, though, to shift it down to that, because the Canucks are paying attention. They like keeping their dollar low to be able to sell goods to the US. 2) A lower value of the US $ will make US goods more affordable in Europe and will boost jobs in the US. Don't worry, there are real brains at work there, who don't listen to two-bit investors and phony investment experts who try to con people into silly mistakes. Selling US dollars when they are low to buy euros when that currency is high, is about as stupid a mistake as anybody can make. Right now it would be best to just double your money. Fold it in half and stick it back into your wallet, or invest it in your own business. Pay off loans, buy tools, equipment and supplies. Have FUN! Dear Webby
