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.

246... yeah, in practice

I rocked it hardcore the other day. I would’ve had a 266 but I guttered my second ball in the tenth. I was fuming!! But I followed with another strike. Sadly, this was just in practice. My highest league score is a 192, so until I get that 200 (maybe tonight) I won’t be satisfied.

Week 4, 9-28-07

I started and finished strong, but my middle game sucked. 187,128,191. My two highest and second lowest games of the season. My teammate pointed out that I was bowling angry the second game, and he was right. Next week I’m traveling, but the week after that I’m 95% sure of a 200+ game. Tonight was my highest series ever at 506. My average jumped 15 pins to 168.

Sunshine State Federal Fridays

This is the name of my bowling league. My teammates suck (and they know it) but our hadicaps are 90%/230 so we usually win one or two regardless. My average this season is 151 and my high game is 172. My high during practice today was 179, but over 7 games I averaged 149. I’ll practice tomorrow morning and Friday afternoon. The strikes I throw are rather pretty, but they are fleeting.
