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.

At night the cameras use longer exposure times. It is
virtually impossible to hold the camera steady enough so
that you don't get fuzzy pictures, especially if you use
You will need to use a tripod or rest the camera on a
little sand bag. An old, soft, and no longer shiny leather
purse, filled with sand or salt or sugar makes a very good
tripod substitute. So does a cut off piece of sleeve from
an old coat. The little pillow should be about hand size
or bigger, and thick enough so that you can wiggle the
camera into the right position.
If your camera has a remote control, use that for night
shots. If you don't have a wireless remote control, then
your camera probably has a connection for a "Bulb" or
other manual remote control. You can get those at any
camera store or order them on-line quite cheaply.
