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 Libby=== Dear Webby, I finally signed up with a high speed DSL. I love it! I was wondering, is there really a program that will tell you "You've Got Mail" like in the movies? My PC is always on. I only turn it off during storms or when we are away for a few days. I would love to know about my mail without pulling up the site, if possible. I use Outlook Express. Thanks for your help. Libby Dear Libby To change the new mail sound in Outlook and Outlook Express: Select Control Panel from the Start menu. Make sure you are in Classic View. Double-click Sounds and Audio Devices. Go to the Sounds tab. Highlight New Mail Notification in the Program Events list. Select a sound from the Sounds list, or use the Browse button to find a sound not in the list. Click OK. In case you don't have any suitable sounds, I uploaded a dozen short wav's that you can use: Email notification sounds Don't link to those wav files, just download them to your computer. You can also use those wav files to replace standard Windows alert sounds. It is an April 1 tradition to sneak files like the bbfire.wav onto co-workers machines to replace the Windows start-up noise or the Windows menu-open sound. Have FUN Dear Webby
