How to be cheap part 2

Did I say cheap? I meant "resourceful". About a year ago Phillip picked up an elliptical runner for me off of Craigslist. I dusted it, I hung clothes off of it. I went to the gym and used theirs. Why? because there was no power supply cord and buying one would cost $65 plus tax and shipping. Not worth it right?
Tonight after a bit of Internet research I began to wonder if I could use a compatible power supply cord and after rooting around in my box of cords, wires, cables, and otherwise unused electronics (I'm planning on recycling them some day) I found a power supply cord for a phone charger that fit and when I plugged it Viola! a working piece of fitness equipment. If you hear that our condo has burned down or I got electrocuted you will know why!
