RPi SD Cards

Well, technology once again drives me to pulling my hair out!  I tried to redo my SD card since it self destructed, but the computer said it was "Read Only."  Nothing more, and no options to change it.  Therefore, I came across some weird stuff on the Internet that sounds slightly superstitious.  If one pushes, pulls, and presses on the SD card the right way when it is in the slot, all the problems go away and the SD card is writeable again!  It actually works!  As such, I have the NOOBS Raspberry Pi software installing Raspbian as I write this post!  Hopefully this helps for all those annoying SD cards!
