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.

Eeeerg.

My dad is being so annoying about this. Prices have been going down an down, and he just wont let me get one. At BJ’s one was $450 and then at Wal-Mart it was $325 but whenever I ask him he just says no, and tht he knows exactly where to get one, and tt his friend will hook him up.

I really of getting tired of that excuse. One of his friends moved away and left him with all of these awesome things, a great soundsystem, all of these cookbooks, and then they leave me their old I-mac which, in the car, looks amazing. My dad tells me that in order to get the computer I need to finish this monstrous 3-d puzzle. 1,850 peices and 3.5 feet tall, a replica of the empire state building, just haphazardly thrown together, the instructions saying that anything with a red line on it was garbage and didn't go in the puzzle.  ALL THE WINDOWS WERE OUTLINED IN RED!!!!!!!!
Finally I finish it, just on the morning that my Book report is due, typed, and My dad sets up the computer and I learn that the computer was made 1993, and is older than me. It just barely turns on and when I prin with it some of the lins are a little messy, but t works. I get home from School that day, and it breaks.
All I want for Christmas is a good laptop, a good laptop, a good laptop!
