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.

Wish ToddieM a "Foot"-Stompin, "Sole"-fully Delightful Birthday on May 18th
It's ToddieM's Birthday

Happy birthday to one of the wittiest people that I know. ToddieM can take the germane, the mundane, the arcane, even the profane, and somehow turn it into something inane.

It’s great having you here.

Enjoy your day and have a couple of good laughs with those closest to you.

Grats, R8!

My vocabulary has about been ousted on the “ane” as your effluent one has obviously exhausted all of the good ones.
Suffice to say, I had a classmate named Duane, and I’ve been known to inject lidocaine to achieve anesthesia.
Like that side view of the three jokers.
Question: why does Tom Servo always get carried into the theatre? I’ve seen him “walk” outside of the theatre before….

Walking Servo

I don’t really know the really reason that Servo is carried into the theater, rather than to let him walk in on his own. If I had to guess I would say that it has something to do with the interest of time.
