For those of us who can barely tell a sewing matching treadle from a Macintosh mouse, the UT computer help line is a godsend. No questions asked. No enrollment necessary. Although intended for the UT community, they do answer, er, "anonymous contacts." The budding Dells, Gates, and Wozniaks at the help line answer over 100,000 questions each year, so chances are they'll be able to answer yours. They won't send a nerd right over, but he or she will be there in spirit. Walk-in and e-mail help also available at email@example.com. During UT calendar days, they are open Monday-Thursday, 9am-8:30pm, and Fridays 9am-6pm. During UT breaks, Monday-Friday, 9am-6pm.
