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!

09/24/03: Broken File Names

Tech Support Pits:
From Martha M=== Dear Webby I know that you once told us that leaving spaces in file names is childish and stooopid and sooner or later causes problems. The bonehead we have as a computer teacher in school insists that it is OK to have spaces in file names. What were the reasons for not putting spaces into file names? Thanks, Martha M Dear Martha If a file is not intended to ever leave the computer and never be used on the web or on another computer, then broken file names CAN sometimes be used. However, since broken file names don't work with all browsers and with very few web servers, it's a really dumb idea to get into the bad habit of breaking names. Broken file names do not work in DOS They do not work with many programs They do not work with all browsers They do not work with most web servers. Better stick with the rules that DO work everywhere: No broken file names. Have FUN DearWebby
