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.

What's with all the mails coming in from all over the place
about this amazing fuel saver? You used to be an engineer,
what is your opinion on that?
How many times do I have to repeat:

"Cow Magnets" for that, and for a while more cow
magnets were sold to dumb sheep than to farmers.
They don't do anything to fuel.

from them are the scammers, not the dumb sheep who
If you want to save fuel, change your driving habits.
Pretend you are a chauffeur for some royalty and driving
a lame Rolls Royce. Accelerate as gently as a garbage
barge, shift into neutral to slow down, shut the engine
off at traffic lights, don't exceed the speed limit, record
your mileage betwen fill-ups. Taking the sand bags from
last winter out of the trunk until it snows again is also
said to improve fuel economy.
