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.

ELEPHANTandCASTLE Ahhh,...warming up.

I want to make it to a warm Asian location in the winter
To be warm while others freeze

I picture myself in the tropics, reclining in a beach chair, being served an umbrella clad drink by some barely clad exotic Asian beauty. I’ve managed to save a few quid. Any suggestions.


DocD Ahh, calm has returned.

The warm winter

I suggest either Thailand or Indonesia. The southern Thai gulf islands are well equiped and practiced and serving and filling your needs. The island of Koh Samui is one of the best, but there are many places to choose from. Indonesia also has some good destinations. Bali might be the most comfortable, but also the most expensive, though there are bargains to be had. Some of the outer islands, though lacking in much of the “frills”, are more layed back and relaxing. Bunaken, the Gilis, and the Bandas come to mind. Frankly, if you’ve never been to Indonesia, I’d go for Bali. Try Kuta Beach. Poppies Bungalows are fantastic, but up scale in amenities and price. Fat Yogi’s, next door is much cheaper and not bad at all. A short walk to famous Kuta Beach. Great restaurants too.
