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 Brie=== Dear Webby, why are some files on the net ".htm" and some are ".html" ? Which should I use for my pages? Brie Dear Brie Nowadays ".html" is correct. All of the better servers are configured to recognize ".htm", but ONLY IF no file by the same name and "html" is found. However, you can't count on the server to be configured correctly (unless you are on a webby server, of course). Deep down there are some real reasons for keeping ".htm" and ".html" apart. ".htm" is from DOS and Windows 3.1 and early versions of the HTM Language. Those files can not be used easily,or pulled into other files as virtual includes like headers, footers, etc. You CAN, but only one of them. With the newer ".html" files you can merge in many different include files. Therefore, whenever possible, use ".html". Have FUN DearWebby
