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 Connie=== Dear Webby The EasyMove kit sounds good, but is it just for laptops? Also, wouldn’t I need to buy two CMS hard drives? Connie Dear Connie You can also buy two yard sale hard drives, or whatever hard drives you want. The 32 pin plug is the same on all hard drives. 3 1/2 " laptop hard drives are more rugged, fit into a shirt pocket or fat wallet, and at $90 for a 120 GB drive with full warranty, are a pretty good deal! Personally, for stuff that is going to be moved around and tossed in amongst the bushes, I prefer the ruggedized laptop drives. I also like the fact that laptop drives don't need a separate power cable. They take the power from the USB / Data cable. If you use the klunky 7 1/2 " desktop drives, you can still use the kit, but then you need a 12 Volt power source, either from a red-black-black-yellow power cable in the computer or from a 12 Volt Walkman or phone charger power plug. Since I consider that unnecessary hassle, I rather pay $3 more for a laptop drive and forget the power cable. Have FUN! Dear Webby
