Hofbauer Micro Box
By Robbie Rhodes

[ Editor's Note:
[ Back in June, Hal O'Rourke posed a question about the
[ Hofbauer system. Quite a bit off "side" correspondence
[ went on, but the results were never sent out to the
[ group. Hal reminded me today -- he was not included
[ the "side" conversations. Oops. Sorry! Here's the
[ correspondence, some of it translated from German by
[ Robbie Rhodes.
