What is floobydust? I have come across this expression in an AN from National long time ago and I asked a couple of people about it including a native englishman. Noone had the answer.

Floobydust

"Floobydust" is a contemporary term derived from the archaic Latin miscellaneus, whose disputed history probably springs from Greek origins (influenced, of course by Egyptian linguists) - meaning here "a mixed bag."

Answer from Mr. Pease himself:

**** Floobydust just means, "miscellaneous".

> and where does it come from?

*** This phraqse apparently came from a customer vsist between Dennis Bohn and
Tim Isbell, and a customer of NSC, about 30 years ago. It may even have come
from the customer's daughter? Lost in the murk of history. / best regards. /
