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 Sarah=== Dear Webby, I noticed that on some sites pictures download a lot faster than on some others, and slowest of all on mine. It's just a fun site on geocities, but it's so slow that it's no fun at all. What am I doing wrong? Sarah Dear Sarah You are using unnecessarily huge pictures. There is no point in using 1200 x 900 pictures and then forcing the visitor's browser to re-calculate them to 400 x 300. Resize them to the final size before you upload them. You can gain even more speed if you use your graphics program to compress them. Keep an original uncompressed, but compress the copies that you upload by 10-15%. Have FUN! DearWebby
