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.
Tech Support Pits column from Dear Webby's Humor Letter of
07/24/05: Is browser-FTP the end of traditional FTP?
Tech Support Pits:

Thanks for showing me how to use a browser for quickly
down- and upload files while traveling. It sure works slick!
To think that browser FTP has been sitting under my nose
and hiding for five years, that just frosts mah buns!
Now that you let the cat out of the bag, is this the end of
traditional FTP programs?
I have by no means keeping browser FTP secret and have
occasionally mentioned it ever since XP came out.
Browser FTP is a neat solution for simple down and uploads,
but it will never completely replace professional FTP
programs. You can't queue or "stage" a complicated upload
from various different folders to different directories on the
server, and then, when everything is ready, connect and
upload in one batch. Also macros and site managers are not
possible for browser FTP. Using your regular browser as
an FTP is a neat additional tool to have, but it won't
replace Leap or BulletProof or any professional grade FTP
