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.

2006 Plans

For 2006, I still have a backlog of boxes from Westfield that I have to open and sort through. Beginning this week, make sure I open at least one box a week, check them off, and file them in long boxes.

Hey Todd

I assume you have a source for sleeves, comic book storage boxes, backer boards, etc?

If not, let me know, I know two bag folk and one that does all of it boxes, backer boards, etc.

Got It Covered

Thanks Judith. I do have a good source for it where I get them for a very nice discount. And thanks for reminding me of this goal, as I’ve been slacking on it.

I loved his style. I may have stole it.

Stylish Cowboys

I liked Rawhide Kid, Kid Colt Outlaw, Two-Gun Kid and Batlash (pictured). I’ve got the complete Batlash series, but didn’t really work on completing my westerns like I did the horror and super-hero series.

So what did you think of Marvel’s latest Rawhide mini where they turned him gay?

Waterfall Nymph I just came to say Goodbye, love.

Um.....

So how’s this goal going anyway? I seem to put bagging my comics on my to do list every week!

Not Well

I did go through quite a few of my backlog, but then I got busy and haven’t tackled it again. I keep looking at the boxes and thinking I need to tackle them. On the other hand, I did complete organizing my DVDs which was an accomplishment.

Comics?

I wish I could afford comics! I get to read them second hand at the library instead…when they’re there.

What comics do you have? Do you have the original serialized Watchmen?

70,000+

I’ve got all kinds of comics going back to the 40s through current. I’ve mainly been into superhero comics, but also have bought westerns, war, romance, horror and other genres. I’ve been trying to finish my collection of Josie (of Josie & The Pussycats fame).

I think I’ve got a few issues of Watchmen but not all of them.

lob is excited about grad school...

wow!

very impressive! My oldest son collects a few comic books, not nearly as many as you have. He mainly collects The Phantom and Lucky Luke (hence his nickname since he was small). Most of his are in Swedish, which he prefers. Though yesterday he bought 2 more Phantom in English.
