i was called out about this just this week. i used to use these when i wanted to signify “it doesn’t matter what this thing is”. but that doesn’t matter to a person who is encountering the concepts for the first time and to whom there could be meaning in any part of the example.
Dear tech bloggers,
Please stop using Foo, Bar, Baz, Fizz, Buzz, etc. when writing tutorials. Use names of real things …
THE PLOT THICKENS
i wouldn’t be here if a startup seven years ago hadn’t looked at the the person who’d failed their degree and said “eh sure”. i don’t know if they’d have done that for a non-white or non-male-presenting person
for some reason the disk’s GPT was telling windows it was only 2TB. gparted did fix that so windows disk management could resize the partition (which took about thirty seconds)
update: after ~1 hour, gparted had quit. i rebooted to find it had not in fact resized the partition (but all my data was there)
i’m sure this is fine, and not impending data loss
