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.

Barbara is back to her normal self is getting ready for a new fridge!

finish working on the house (read all 6 entries…)

Much progress has been made on this goal. Since our fridge was dying a slow and ugly death, we decided that we really needed to get a new fridge. New fridge means that we need to rip out the cabinets and ripping out the cabinets means that I need to paint the wall, might as well replace the floor while we are at it.

The fridge comes tomorrow, here is one of the before pix.

...your current fridge looks choc-a-block with notes! I wish I was that busy. : o

we are quite busy, most of that is 100% papers of the kids and phone numbers not to be lost or recipes to try. I’ve just cleaned it off and cleaned out most of it. Luckily, the new fridge will be larger (the current one is more like an apartment size. —The sales folks couldn’t believe that we’d been using a fridge that small).
