    Answer to what is foobar?


    Nujinini, foobar, should have been spelled FUBAR, is an old military expression. It means "Fouled up beyond all recognition" and originally referred to military battle plans, but came to be used by the troops to refer to anything that was fouled up, broken, or not working. Hope that helps.

    Works fine, running Linux Mint from the hard drive. Thanks again!

    Note: Oddly, MASONTX, the spell checker suggested foobar. I took its word for it. Now, on Firefox/Mint instead of Iceweasel/Knoppix, the suggestions are nowhere near it.
