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.

My son is sick today. He has a fever and recently is throwing up a bit. (Nothing scary, just letting him rest and keeping an eye on him.)

After he threw up I gave him water and encouraged him to drink as much as he could, because throwing up is no fun but dry heaves are the worst.

He agreed, “Dry heaves are the worst. Wet heaves are the best.”

I feel sorry for the kid, but couldn’t help laughing my ass off at that one!



Funny :D

But I hope he feels better soon, CB!

Even worse than being sick yourself is taking care of a sick child :/

The fever seems to have broken

It was about 102 all morning. I made him take a couple of baths, and gave him Tylenol and such, and kept him hydrated, sang to him, and put a cold cloth on his head. Finally I checked on him an hour ago and it’s down to 99.8. So that’s an improvement! Barely a degree above normal.

He’s still resting. I bought him a comic book to read, and some candy, and lots and lots of fresh fruit and juice. If he weren’t sick he’d be having the time of his life!

I hope he’ll be feeling much better by tomorrow.
