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.

We visited the local casino yesterday – choosing the night of one of the bigger events there unknowingly.

The three course dinner was changed into a four course one – a very nice one, too. We enjoyed it a lot and even got an additional glass of champagne to toast!

On we went to use our chips – and not only did we win the whole cost of the vouchers back, but it also won a New Year’s Eve party at the casino for six persons.
What a nice idea. It might be a bit crowded, but the thought alone is a nice one and it makes me smile :)

So, we cashed in our chips without playing a second round and drove home happy.


The vouchers for the 3 course dinner in the casino restaurant and the chips for a nice evening in one of the casinos arrived and were given on Valentine’s Day.

Now on to plan an evening – perhaps in April? And where?
I’ll have to check out the available casinos and restaurants.

Planning for a fun night out :-)


A comment from Techkat reminded me to go and look at all my goals.
Here I am, and this goal has not seen much attention lately!

But I just googled our local casino and there is an offer of a nice 3 course dinner with a few chips thrown in – I think about getting that for a valentine.

Maybe I’ll get there this way :-)

I was

at a casino once for a vernissage, about 12 years ago.
Didn’t seem like much fun, but it was a very small casino.

Now I read about some big casinos near us (only a few hours drive) and they offer all sort of entertainement.

I’m curious to see if this is fun. Is it? I’ll have to find out.
