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.

work harder on my customer service skills (read all 3 entries…)

Today at work I have had a reprieve from working on my customer service skills, as there has not been one single customer in five hours! Guess no one wants to come inside and buy tickets on such a lovely day.

It has also afforded me the leisure time to play on 43things all afternoon, which never fails to cheer me up. Only two more hours and I get to go watch the first episode of “Angel.” (I’m a geek, and I’m proud!)

I recently watched...

...all seven seasons of Buffy. I loved it (except for the last season, utter ridiculousness). Last night I watched “Batman Begins,” which made me think bats which made me think that I hadn’t started my “Angel” goal yet.

Yes, “Batman Begins.”

Fanboys, you may bow before me and kiss my wellies.

calypte excited about 2014!

Batman Begins

was fantastic! Roll on Dark Knight!!

Grief… I wish someone would repeat Angel again.

I love...

...television on DVD! I love being able to watch as much or as little as I want, all without commercials.

I watched the last episode of “Heroes” right when it aired and it drove me crazy! I kept laying on the floor when the commercials came on, going “No, I hate real time!”

and cliffhangers!

I’ve got ‘24’ on DVD at the moment, and it’s great being able to just watch the next episode without the wait!

Actually, even when it’s not on DVD, I tend to record everything and fast forward through the ads!
