Hoffy pops in for a short update to show his face and what is left of his laryngitis ravaged voice.

laryngitis and the Infinite Delay

Production & Recording Continues

We are fully underway with theThe Hoffy's Workshop Show final planning and recording phases of the first episode.  The production of the return “Season #2” has been slowed by a lot of technical issues and need to upgrade.  These upgrades have been made the best we can do on a shoe string.  We had hoped to bring The Hoffy’s Workshop Show back as a live show with direct audience interaction.  The hardware we use, bandwidth considerations, and other factors however restrict us from doing so at this time.  We are hoping to finish production within the next two weeks with a goal of sooner instead of later.
