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.

Absnasm Thanks 43T. You made me and my life better. I'll miss you very much.

Get a new cooker or get the existing one fixed (read all 2 entries…)
Still broken.

Fuck’s sake.

Christmas is coming and it looks like I might be having it here with GG, rather than face the terror of going to his parents’ or the hassle of going to mine. But there’s no way I can cook a Christmas dinner in the small grill/oven on top of the main one. It’s too shallow, the Yorkshires would stick to the roof, or they would if they rise like they’re supposed to.

I might wind up getting my oven fixed as a Christmas present from my parents, which is possibly the lamest gift ever. Even lamer than last year, when my dad serviced my car and bought me two new tyres. Poverty-driven essentials for Christmas, hooray!


calypte excited about 2014!

at least

you can feel all smug about not being materialistic. I’ve had to come up with some pressie ideas, and found that most of what I really wanted fell into the “organise/research/otherwise take the hassle out of this” sort of category, rather than the slight dread of yet more clutter in the flat!

That would be a cool gift – getting what you need the most at the moment…

Absnasm has gotten 8 cheers on this entry.


I want to:
