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 Cindy=== Dear Webby How good is the quality of music that you buy from for example iTunes and download ? Does it depend on how good a connection you have? Thanks Cindy Dear Cindy The quality is normally exactly as good or as bad as what the artist has uploaded. The music is in digital format, just a herd of ones and zeros, not an analog format like you get on the radio. It is also a lot better than streaming (play as it comes in) type music, since it downloads the entire piece first before you can play it. After that, the sound quality depends entirely on the quality of your computer's sound card and the speakers that you use. Don't expect concert quality from $4.95 per pair speakers! Best is to connect the speaker cables to the AUX input on your home stereo system or boom box or TV. For the absolute best, use an ancient entertainment center that uses tubes instead of transistors. Tubes create lower harmonics, while transistors leak into the higher harmonics, which, even though much crisper and theoretically more accurate, are very tinny by comparison and not nearly as pleasant as when the amplifier adds lower harmonics. Have FUN Dear Webby
