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 Art=== Dear Webby, We have a few computers in a dust proof console. With the warmer weather it is getting way too hot in there. What is the best way to cool them without going to expensive air conditioning? Thanks Art Dear Art Just get a short section of hot water radiator and hook it up to cold water. Mount it in the top of the cabinet. Adjust the flow to a slow trickle and use an electric valve from a dishwasher or washing machine so that you can shut it off at night or when the temperature is cooler with just a push button. The drain pipe or hose should exit into a sink or eaves trough or anything that is higher up than the radiator. Usually the fans in the computers create enough turbulence in a cabinet, but you can always mount a fan from an old power supply to blow across the radiator. Any reasonably quiet fan will do for that. Don't worry about condensation. You aren't using fresh air. Have FUN Dear Webby
