Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

- The Robots.

is that the actual cam you got?

looks like a good one!

Yep

Last years model so it was only £199. It’s got a Leica lense. 12x optical zoom. built in flash. Manual focus. 5mp. It came with only a 16mb card which doesn’t even fit 1 picture using the highest settings :lol: I thing it won an award too. I’m looking forward to photo challenge starting up again.

bex

thats a good deal...

what a stupidly small memory card! i just got a GB one for mine!i can fit hundreds of photos on it! but my cam uses alot of memory card per pic! yey for your new cam! photo challenge starts again after new year!

Yeah I'm really happy

It came from jessops aswell which I wasn’t expecting to be cheap. It’s been removed from their website now so I think they must have sold the last of their stock.

How much was the GB and which make is it? I want to get one but you see alot of mixed reviews of them. And what resolution do you use?

bex

well well well

i got the GB compact flash card for crimbo but they are about £100 but very worth having! they mean you be snap happy and not have to upload pics every 5 mins! I have canon eos 350d, i love it but spent silly money on it!
Oh your gonna have so much fun with your new cam!

And may I add

How was your crimbo?

bex

well kind sir...

i must say it was ok! i had a good time seeing my sisters, i have 3 and it was lovely to be with them for a few days!
I am glad xmas is over now though!
Oh and i suggest you buy a good tripod for the new cam!
