what does that mean?

It doesn't make sense.

Maybe you mean "I think that's it for now."

It could be "I think that its all for naught."

<<It could be "I think that its all for naught.">>

That's what I was thinking, as well.

Abc, in some dialects of North American English (including mine--I'm from California) "naught" and "not" are pronounced identically because those vowels have been merged (there are many other words in those classes, too). Thus, such speakers may confuse their spellings (especially because "naught/nought" isn't a very common word).

Thank you all. It musta been a typo.
But what does "I think that its all for naught" mean anyway?

It means that what someone is doing will not matter in the end. It's a bit defeatist.

"Naught" means "nothing". So, it means "I think that nothing will result from it."
