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.

More progress!

I have completed 12 lessons from this C++ tutorial in two days. There are only 16 lessons, so I’ll be onto the advanced tutorial soon.

I found a list of “10 programming languages you should learn today,” so I’m going to work through it after C++. I’m also trying to learn web scripting languages at the same time, busy busy.

To get some practice, I made up a couple programs to write. One accepts the amount of times you did something in a week and gives you back statistics on it. The other accepts questions about a topic and gives back answers to the common ones.

If anyone has some useful C++ programs I could write for practice (or even better, a website full of them), let me know. :)
