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!

05/31/04: Prematurely dead ink cartridge

Tech Support Pits:
From AnnaMarie=== Dear Webby I don't print that often, and I find that during the interval the cartridges go dead, even though they are still nearly full. Do they have a time limit ? AnnaMarie Dear AnnaMarie There is no time limit, but the printheads do tend to dry up. On the better printers the printheads are parked by pressing them onto some foam, but after some time they dry up anyway. Put some hot water and window cleaner mix into a saucer or ashtray and park the cartridge in that for an hour. Dry it off and use it right away. Usually that will rejuvenate it. Unlike the popular method of spitting on it and scrubbing the delicate printhead with scratchy paper towel, the soaking method does not damage the printhead. Have FUN Dear Webby
