No clock and oil gauge

About a week ago I noticed the clock was out on my 99 Boxster. When I went to start her the next time I noticed the oil guage was not lit. I thought maybe a fuse. Then after about 20 minutes it came back on. Now it is a fifty fifty deal at first but eventually the gauge / clock works. Is this a common issue, do the gauges wear out? Or maybe a loose connection is the culprit!

The fact that they went out isn't too puzzling as the bulbs do sometimes burn out. The fact that it's intermittent is more problematic.

There's a writeup I did a long time ago on removing the cluster that can be found right here.

Try wiggling the ignition key - a bad ignition key can cause some strange electrical faults.
