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 Patrick=== Dear Webby 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? Thanks, Patrick Dear Patrick How many times do I have to repeat: Spammers lie ! The fuel line magnets have been around for ages. I remember in the 70's the scammers were pushing "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. If those silly gadgets were effective, the car manufacturers would use them. If Ford had found that they would get half a percentage point better fuel mileage with them and could sneak past Dodge in the magazine comparisons, they would have made them standard 30 years ago! It's still the same scam and still the only ones benefitting from them are the scammers, not the dumb sheep who buy them. 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. Have FUN DearWebby
