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 ~paco=== hi webby, i just finished voting for ur ezine on cumuli and went reading my mail when i noticed that you had no tech help section entry, claiming there were no unanswered questions to enter. i sent you one a few weeks to a month ago in where i asked if there was any way to get into dosshell from win xp pro, but i don't recall seeing a reply. i made it a habit to go there in win 98 se and clear out the dead wood after i had gone into dos and deleted my swap file and temp files. i had heard there was a way in thru a startup disk but i never found out how. have you ever heard of any way to get into dos from win xp? ~paco Hi ~paco I had answered that question a few times. Just hit START, RUN, type cmd Hit Enter. You will have a DOS window. All your old bats going back to DOS 3 will work just fine. For making a snazzy DOS icon, have a look at the Sept 14/03 humor letter, or search for it in the tech tips at Just put DOS into the search and it will find a few of them. The one with the DOS icon is at DOS Icon Have FUN Dear Webby
