Basic handyman and repair skills should be taught in high school.

Just basic stuff like sewing, how to properly and safely install shelves and furniture, fixing basic plumbing issues, how to safely use power tools and regular tools, and most of all, how to troubleshoot problems. It's so often that people I know have an object or item break and instead of trying to determine themselves what broke it and how they could go about fixing it up, they just see the item as worthless and will just buy a new one despite a fix being criminally simple.

We should be taught to use our own intuition and plan out repairing things. It genuinely makes me feel confident and proud whenever I can fix something up, even if it's a simple task. We should also be taught when it's time to call in a professional.

I know some of the things I've described were most likely in home ed classes way back, but nowadays at least at my high school in Canada, it's been split into food and nutrition and healthcare. There's also obviously much more that should be taught, I only gave a few examples.

Been a PC hardware enthusiast since I was a kid and had my first job at a PC repair shop. Now at 31 with some exposable income I'm supremely annoyed at the current situation with regards to stock and pricing of components.

What a crappy time this is. Just really, really crappy.

First off, stock for most of the new PC components, including CPUs and GPUs are non existent and have been for a long time. Secondly, when they are in stock, it is fleeting and they are incredibly overpriced. I had hoped that being a bit more patient and waiting until the new year things would improve somewhat, but here we are in the new year and it's the same as it ever was, if not worse in regards to the pricing.

A 6800 XT for 1000-1100 Euros? REALLY? How in the hell is this even possible, let alone acceptable. It's beyond a joke. This generation was really interesting to me because we have seen some marked performance improvements at what seems to be a reasonable price, if we take a 6800XT at around 650€ as an example. It is still pricy, sure, as I remember being able to get top tier cards for around 400€, however comparatively that seems like an utter bargain when all the actual available cards are priced at nearly double that.

Absolutely infuriating and completely disheartening to me, as I'm super eager to finally upgrade and enjoy the current generation of games at the best possible quality.

My current setup consists of 2 GTX 970s in SLi. Far from ideal since SLi is dead, and also it is really starting to show its age in new titles at 1440p, however it has served me well for a good few years. Now it comes time make a meaningful upgrade that would be an absolutely massive difference and I can't do it. I haven't been able to for months, and I have been regularly checking stock levels.

The same with a PS5 - where are they? I can't remember any time before where things have been apparently so limited and so inflated in price. This whole period has really bummed me out and made me far less enthusiastic about the whole PC and gaming scene.

It looks like by the time stock returns to some kind of 'normal', if it ever does, then we'll be looking forward to series refreshes or new models, and the whole cycle can start over again.

So when is the end in sight? When can we actually buy some damn hardware? I just can't fathom any more how this awful situation keeps prolonging itself.

Edit: my income isn't a serial flasher that likes to expose itself, I'm gonna blame my mobile keyboard

Just had an intern completely destroy all the SFP+ ports on one of my Cisco switches, anyone have experience with Cisco repair services?

As the title says - the kid leaned a box containing some cable tray components up against the rack, it slid sideways, grabbed the cables plugged into the SFP+ ports and completely destroyed the modules, connectors, and all the SFP+ ports are now dead. It was an honest mistake, and he learned from it. Luckily we have redundancies and were able to patch around the down switch. My question is, has anyone on this form had similar damage to a switch and how likely is it that Cisco would warranty repair it? Switch was purchased only 3 months ago.
