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.

Epic Fail last night...

Road construction on south Broadway has exposed trolley tracks from the Denver Tramway.
Yesterday, I noticed some of them had been cut down to 6 foot lengths with a torch. I wanted some of them. I’m a railway and history buff.
So off we went last night, in a giant truck with windshield wipers that don’t work on a 20 mile trek. LOL
It was raining.
I thought the rails looked like 90lb rail. 90 pounds per foot.
Upon arrival, both of us couldn’t budge the piece we tried to.

Damn, But tried.



Hard to believe

that you don’t have one- a cutting torch seems right up your alley :D

It's something I've never had...

(Note to self)
Get a small cutting torch from Northern Tool or Harbor Freight.
Can I call you if I get arrested? ;)



I’ll come visit you, but I don’t think they’ll let me bring your new cutting torch ;)


I want to:
