Old tricks can still save money

Recently, there was no sound coming out from my main PC and I began to suspect the sound card, an aging Guillemot Maxi Sound Muse. Naturally, my thoughts turned to acquiring and those in stock at PC World seemed to have unknown or dubious Linux compatibility. However, I powered the machine down for the night and re-seated the card in its slot the following morning. That was enough to solve the problem and I held onto my cash, never a bad thing and especially so in these times. It’s always nice to know that and old trick still has its place.
