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.

When I visited my mom this weekend, I noticed she was using
her computer as a radio, and that the music was beautiful
and clear, at least as good, if not better, than on my radio.
When I got home I set up Yahoo messenger and the radio in
it, but it sounded really poor. We both use the same DSL
provider, and my machine is at least 3 - 4 years newer. Why
can't I get the same sound quality?
Most likely your mother has a real sound card in her
computer, and yours probably has just a sound chip on the
motherboard. Sound cards are relatively cheap and a snap
Speakers also make a huge difference. There is simply no
way that the $4.95 default squeakers can sound as well as
if you run the sound into the AUX INput on a home stereo or
a boom box.
