...so if someone has a dead Jukebox, Bjorn will be more that happy to take
the 7034 from it... :-)

If any of you know that you aren't going to use the remote control, or debug
via the serial port on your Jukebox, please contact Björn. You can then swap
CPU boards with him. His CPU board works perfectly, it's only the serial
port that is dead.

Oh, man, that smell is something I won't forget... One of those small screws
penetrated the isolation of the red power cable from the batteries. Lots of
smoke from underneath the display...
An IRF7416 was killed. I will replace it later this week. I hope that was
the only component that died...

So the GDB stub might be delayed a few more days. It is actually working,
but I have a few more things to do before I release it. Stay tuned.
