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.

April 2012
Yard
Apr.8Trimmed bushes, sprayed with Image in back. Rained later in the day though.
Apr.23Ran Mitsukaze in the back and north side of house, seemed to run for a few hours. Removed grass with edger/trimmer around tree in back. Weeded a little in front. Edged/trimmed. Found 3 ant hills: one near tree in front on south end of yard, one between mailbox and driveway, and one in back near patio. Trimmed bushes a bit around driveway and front of house. Image seemed to do a decent job on the poa annua. Had water turned off while I was away. Bushes showing a little dryness. Also, I noticed the oak tree in the back has cracks in the bark. I’ll need to check if this is normal. Based on a quick search on Google, this doesn’t seem to be oak wilt as the tree otherwise looks very healthy. Could be freeze damage or rapid growth not giving the bark time to expand. This oak is the biggest of the three oaks.
