column gradually shifted to answering tech support questions put forward by the readers of the Dear

because some questions were asked again and again. Each page has a different day's Tech Support Pits column.

plenty of those programs available for free, and most likely
the spammers are just trying to con you into paying for one of

The general term for those programs is "Audio Ripper", even
though they work for movies too. Originally they were used to
"rip off" the music from Music DVD's and make bootleg copies.
The name stuck.
