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 Jennifer=== What's the big panic about spyware and stuff. I got nothing to hide and don't give a hoot if anybody knows where I shop and what for. Why worry then ? Jennifer Dear Jennifer A lot of the spyware carries a Trojan program that will take over part of your computer. Some of them for example carry the "Connect2Party" worm. It waits for the screensaver or other periods of inactivity, then disconnects you from the net and uses your modem to call expensive 1-900 numbers. At $50 or more per minute you can get a very nasty surprise on your next phone bill. Better use some decent Anti-Spyware program. You can get the free Spyware-Search&Destroy from Have FUN DearWebby
