    When submitting a long post/PM to the FORT, it takes forever and won't work on Modzilla however on IE it goes in a flash. Anybody know why?

    It's just the opposite for me, AI. Firefox is MUCH faster than IE (for me).

    What does "Egads!" mean? Is this a FORT term? I had one chick say it to me and I thought it was a silly word she made up and then I saw another chick post it. I am guessing it means like oh my God or something but just wanted to double check. heheh

    It's not a FORT term, it exists in the real world. You'e never heard that expression before? It's an exclamation of surprise with a little disgust thrown in. I guess it's a little old-fashioned, though.

    I think egads is a cuss word that the 'older generations' use... Veronica's dad says it all the time. (Archie comics)

    I don't think it is a cuss word, per se.

    From the Miriam Webster online dictionary:

    Main Entry: egad
    Pronunciation: i-'gad
    Variant(s): or egads /-'gadz/
    Function: interjection
    Etymology: probably euphemism for oh God
    -- used as a mild oath
    One example of its use that I found is from Disney's Alice in Wonderland movie:

    Mad Hatter: Personal remarks are rude?
    Alice: Mm-hmm.
    Mad Hatter: Egad, you learn something new every day.
    As hepcat said, it is an exclamation. I tend to use it when I am trying to convey to someone that they completely misunderstood me.

    Hope that helps!

    Now that it's been answered, I hope we can move this back on-topic to FORT-related stuff.
