Oh, to live in the world of IT. It must be like being a wizard in a world full of muggles, clumsily trying to use the magical things all around them, having no idea how any of it actually functions, breaking it, wreaking havoc with the fabric of reality.
And where do you go when you need to vent about all of those woes? To the nerd haven of Reddit, of course.
Specifically, you might want to stop by reddit.com/r/techsupportgore, where you and your fellow geeks can marvel and cringe at the worst the world of electronics has to offer.
Scroll on, if you dare.
10. A little messy
Took me a moment to realize there was a picture of a messy desk ON the screen. And now I feel like I need to burn my own computer just for displaying this image.

9. Somebody touch’a my spaghet!
Looks absolutely delicious to me.
8. The battery pillow
If you see this, your thing is very extremely broken.
7. Screw you
If it’s stupid and it works, it might still be very stupid.

6. WTF is that?
Yeah just kinda stick whatever in there and see if it works.

5. Lights, camera, heat
Is somebody gonna look into that or?
Came back to the dorm while deployed to no lights, or AC…. today was 115F outside from techsupportgore
4. Mousing around
I feel like this is indecent somehow. Like I should be putting up a privacy curtain.
I’m not sure if this belongs here but this is my mouse’s adapter that actually still works. from techsupportgore
3. It works
One could even say it works shockingly well.

2. The village
Well, that’s one way to weatherproof your tech.

1. Gold rush
For the record, there is in fact gold in a lot of electronic components, but extracting it is difficult and the value from this entire pile would be way less than what you’d be paying to get it.
This makes me feel physical pain from techsupportgore
God bless our IT people. They really turn me on. And then back off again.
