I still have OS 9 (9.1, actually) running on my G4 - use it all the time. Still prefer it to OSX.
Just can't access here (and lots of other websites) anymore with OS 9.
I have to use my mouse to click in the input box so I can begin my typing.
Just checking, Robert. Can you get the cursor to appear if you use one of the edit controls rather than clicking in the text area? (For example, I can get the cursor if after the box opens I click the B boldy thing instead of clicking in the writing area.)

Sorry, what's OS 9.2.2???? Wasn't that last century??
Actually, it was last month.
Actually, my favorite was 10.4.11....... but, I generally and sort of try to keep up with things; not necessarily adopting a new OS immediately except when I had to because I bought a new Mac.
Back on topic: The only way I can get the cursor in the text box is to use mouse or trackpad click; if I don't, I get the most unusual results - page jumping elsewhere (literally) or not being able to either move the quoted text or be able to type above or below it.
I did find this way of getting the cursor in the text field:
click on html
type a letter
click on use regular editor
cursor appears in text field
delete letter. You need some text for the cursor to be placed.
While not typical protocol, my understanding is that Apple is watching this forum for comments on the new discussion groups.
Tuttle, I cannot resist, sorry.

The forum software seems to be running faster today. This is very good news if it continues.
