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 Lorna === Dear Webby, I saw an ad for a 10 Megapixel camera for $199.99 That seems like an incredible deal. Is it a good deal or fraud? Lorna Dear Lorna Personally, I would pay maybe $10 for it, to give to an out of favor relative as a birthday present. I saw that spam too, and if I had to describe that no-name brand camera, I would say "Soon to be featured at great discounts at many yard sales." With a tiny plastic lens like that, and faked 10 megapixels, they call it "10.0 mega pixels interpolated quality", picture quality will be in the $10 - $25 range. You won't ever get a good deal fro spam. If you want a good camera, check out reputable on-line camera stores like for example or look at For the same price you can get a Canon Powershot A400 PLUS an iP3000 printer, and from from reputable stores! Or a Canon powershot A85. Those are serious cameras with high quality lenses and worth their money. Have FUN! Dear Webby
