Democrat presidential candidate Barack Obama's quest for the highest office on land suffered a body blow on Tuesday morning after his 86 year old grand mother, Madely Dunham, lost her battle to cancer.

Senator Obama and his wife Michelle released a press statement at 12. 45 am Kenyan time announcing the demise of his grandmother. Obama has in the past variously embelished his grandmother as the pillar of strength in his life.

You can change this now in User CP... or Die Tryin
Funny how all these family issues are coming out about Obama. First he found his so-called 'lost' brother in Kenya, then his Aunt was supposedly living in the USA illegally, and now his grandmother dies.

Too bad McCain doesn't have any relatives he could exploit.

This must be devastating to Obama, hours before the biggest day of his life, and the pillar of his childhood dies. Poor guy.
With that said, at least she died knowing Obama had gotten this far, and likely is going to win.

Yes, you showed Obama! His grandmother dying was obviously part of a last-minute stunt to get more votes, and he doesn't care about her at all despite writing good things about her. Clearly he only cares about winning votes and wanted her to die. Sorry that was a bit mean, but seriously, the man lost someone he cared about, do you think he wanted that?

Of course he did not want that. :thdown: He would want her to live, at least until election day perhaps.

Bull crap, you have nothing to back that up with, why would he even do that? he has the election in the bag, even without the death his his granny

However, for all we know, he never even had a grandmother in the first place?!? =P

    that field is going to explode and though there is competition there is going to be room for all levels in the coming years imho.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Why are we competing for rough mornings? :(
  • Varine Varine:
    I don't want to compete for that, yall can have it.
  • Varine Varine:
    @The Helper I'm trying. Once I am more prepared to be figuring out school I'll probably ask for your advice
  • Varine Varine:
    Right now I'm just trying to get through the pandemic and figure out how I'm going to pay for it, and figure out what I need to get a job at Best Buy instead of a kitchen somewhere.
  • thewrongvine thewrongvine:
    oy just catching up on the discussion above. @Varine yeah I usually alternate between claritin & zyrtec, depending on whatever my body decides to reject at the time lol
  • thewrongvine thewrongvine:
    the more I use it the less effective it gets over time as my body accustoms to it so I try to not use it every day
  • S songbird:
    Glad to see some interest in the IS3 NUON reprint. :)
    +1
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Thank you Carl for making that happen that just might be the spark we need.
  • Varine Varine:
    I'm confused and amazed that NUON and TWV's news postings are the things still active.
  • Varine Varine:
    Or Tom Mai, not TWV
  • Varine Varine:
    Whatever happened to Cheshire? Or Firecat, whatever his real name was?
  • Varine Varine:
    I've been using both claritin and fexofenadine or something like that recently alternately and that's been kinda working, I don't feel like my face is going to explode at least. Eyes are still itchy as fuck though
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    I dunno, haven't seen Firecat in a long while now.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    By the way, we have new file attachment size limits now.
  • Varine Varine:
    Are they bigger?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Yeah, new max size limit is 64 MB, to accommodate NUON-Dome emulation.
  • Varine Varine:
    I don't think I ever ran into a file size problem before. What was it before?
  • Varine Varine:
    I've had file type issues before I think, but I haven't uploaded anything since like 2010.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    alot smaller than that basically barely anything and it would have been different then 2010 because of the forum upgrade
  • Varine Varine:
    lol I forgot this used to look different
  • Varine Varine:
    It's by far the brightest webpage I regularly visit, the first thing I usually do is try to figure out dark mode.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    If you invert the colors, The Helper Forums looks amazing
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    It still has that blue theme at the top
  • Ghan Ghan:
    There's no particular hard limit to attachments. "Something reasonable" is preferred to "a size large enough to fill up the server disk"
