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.

nyghtsdragon feel like I have been punched in the gut - with yesterdays news

Not let my sons medical condition make me stop him from doing things he wants to do (read all 2 entries…)
I don't know how.

Well last week was another apt. at childrens hosp. On a good note his heart hasn’t changed. Thats good because it didn’t get worse. I was told no again for the trial drug because his valve is too big – and his valve is too small for surgery. Talk about frustrating !!!

They have taken everything away from my son – as far as what he can do. I understand why, but it doesn’t make it any easier on him. The one thing he had left was his martial arts class. Well they pulled that also. He can go no further. I am thinking GREAT just signed a 2 yr contract and bought his sparing gear.
Then he looks at me from across the room…eyes filled with tears and my heart just breaks for him.
He starts to talk to the dr. but you said I could do it. you said it would be ok. Talk about a tear jerker!
But the Dr told him no. because the further you get into this sport the harder it is going to be to stop.
OK you couldn’t have told us that to begin with?
So frustrated and hate that my baby is hurting.



{{{{{nyghtsdragon}}}}}. It brings tears to my eyes, too – and I don’t even know him.

I wonder if they’d give you a refund on that contract because of the circumstances?
