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 Freddy=== Dear Webby, Today a friend showed me how to use a browser to upload files to my site. It worked just fine. However, afterward I started to wonder about how safe and secure that is. What's your opinion on that? F.W. Dear Freddy If it is just a family site with a picture of your dog and your truck, then it's probably safe enough to use occasionally, to for example correct a typo or add some pictures. Keep in mind that the browser stores the access in it's history. Never combine the log-in info with the URL if you are doing it from a cyber cafe or somebody else's machine. FTP programs are small and it only takes a few seconds to download a trial version of the program that you use at home. After using it at somebody elses machine, you can delete it and there is no record of your log-on info left behind. Have FUN! Dear Webby
