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.

Karon's Summary of King Arthur

First is the sword that Arthur drew out of the stone in the churchyard. The sword was placed in the stone by Merlin, and was left as a trial to determine the High King of Britain. Arthur drew the sword out of the stone when his cousin needed one, for it was the only sword he could see, he was but a boy at the time. Anyway, Arthur was eventually crowned High King, and carried that sword into battle many times. When it broke, he was presented with Excalibur by the Lady of the Lake, this Lake being on the Isle of Avalon. He also received a magical scabbard which would protect him from harm. Excalibur was most likely forged by dragons due to its potent magic. The Lady of the Lake appears again, at the end of Arthur’s life. Arthur ordered Bedevere, one of his most loyal knights, to take Excalibur, and throw it into the Lake of Avalon. It took him three tries to do so. When he came to the Lake the third time, and he finally threw it in, the Lady of the Lake caught the sword, and took it down below the surface. Arthur had been mortally wounded by Mordred, Arthur’s son by Morgan Le Fay, his sister. Arthur killed Mordred after, though. Arthur was taken away by seven ladies on a black barge away from that place, to Avalon, where it is said he lives even now.

[How did him and Merlin meet?]
Merlin was present when Arthur was born. Arthur’s mother, Egraine, died in childbirth, and I cannot remember how his father, Uther Pendragon, died. But anyway, Arthur was taken in by his Uncle, and worked in the palace. When Arthur was a young boy, perhaps 8 or so,
Merlin arrived. He took it upon himself to teach young Arthur. I reckon Merlin was a dragon in disguise. It would explain all his most wonderful magic such as shapeshifting.

Well, it was definately seven black ladies who took Arthur away. By the way, I forgot to mention that they can also shapeshift into black swans.
