We write code to work on the Recorder. We have simulators that we use to
develop the applications on, taking away the need to run it on target to
verify some basic functionality.

We try to write as much code as possible "genericly" to work on all targets,
but we do have particular files and functions that are specificly written for
particular target conditions.

1.0 does not run on the Recorder mainly because:

- We haven't made the ATA driver work. We might need gdb to get this working.
- We might need to modify a Recorder to be able to "gdb it", which hasn't
  yet been done.

When that works, we should be able to get a basic app running. What still
will not work directly even after the ATA-driver is mp3 playback, as the
Recorder has a different mp3 chip that is connected and fed data differently.
