Can Anything Kill Crusty The Mac? TWiR with The h0ff - This Week In Retro 156
We are joined by musician/coder H0ffman this week.

This plucky guy has been through a really rough time but has managed to become a very much respected part of the Vintage Computer Festival (VCF). Finally, how about a new big box game for the Amiga? It is on its way..... All this as well as Dave's Housekeeping, news in brief and our Community Question Of The Week. If you would like to know more about everything H0ffman you can click here: https://hoffman.home.blog/links/ Our sponsor this week is Pixel Addict magazine.
