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 Allison=== Dear Webby, 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? Allison Dear Allison 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 to install. 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. Have FUN! DearWebby
