    My recent DIY story: I woke up at 0515 to run on our treadmill. Got on it, found the buttons wouldn’t work and, instead of throwing up my hands and quitting, I got out my screwdriver, disassembled the panel, reconnected all of the ribbon cables on the inside, got it to work, pieced it back together, and STILL got my run in before 0730! The rest of the day I felt cool as King Kong! And I didn’t have to buy a new panel or hire a repairman!
