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.

Becker Software

My software expires at the end of the month. Does anyone know if it’s possible and how to make the software work past the expiration period? Does anyone know if the Wiley practice questions are worth buying as an alternative? I know the 2007 materials are pretty much the same as 2008 materials so I am not interested in paying $250 for tutition free continuing help with Becker. The practice questions and simulations from Wiley are $79 on Amazon. Any suggestions would be appreciated.


call becker and ask for an extension, they will extend it if you have an exam schedule soon. good luck

if you decide to go with Wiley, I found a 15% discount code. I purchased just last week, so it should still work! i saw it on… scroll to the Aug. 7th posting and you can find it there.

about making the software working past the expiration date… most likely not possible. i did read somewhere on the net, someone said if you know the date you first installed the software, set the date on your computer to that date and it will trick the becker software. not sure if it actually works b/c i never tried it.

good luck!

Susonis Finally done!!!!!!!!!

When I had the software, I called to get an extension and they ended up giving me another year with the software at no cost to me. They walked me through how to extend it via phone and when we got to the screen to override the expiration, he told me not to check and box and I did and because of that I had it for another 12 months. Good luck – just call them and tell them your exam is in a few days, so you don’t want to reregister for the course (otherwise, you can pay $90 or something to extend it).

dpn123 passed BEC & AUD, bombed FAR yesterday


You can download becker on up to three computers. Everytime you download the software you get it for 8 months from the date of download. So as long as you donwload it before your expiration date you can get another 8 months out of it. I have done this three times on three computers and have been using my software since April of 2007.
So for example, if your software expires next month and you only have it one or two computers you still have time to download it to another computer (like a work computer or laptop). If you download it today, after the download, look at the properties and you will see an expiration date of 8 months from now, or May 2009)


Thanks…but how do you check the properties on becker ??


I want to:
