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.

Fun :D

I’m still working on having more fun but I’ll declare this goal as done as I’m definitively having more fun than last year!
I’ve got some more specific goals – like “get out more”.
Perhaps I’ll open it again, but for the moment, I’m having more fun :-)

A lot of dwarves :)

We’re just back from watching The Hobbit in 3D at the local IMAX. That 3D technology took some getting used to and the special glasses they hand you, too.
All in all it was a nice movie, only it’s really long. If you saw The Lord Of The rings trilogy, you’ll have no problems guessing what’s going to happen next.
But we had really nice seats with lots of foot space and sofa like cushioning, so that helped :)
Of course, we’re going to see the next two Hobbit movies, too!

Peter Gabriel

It seems we got tickets to see Peter Gabriel for next year.
I’m so looking forward to that. We’ve got quite a few things scheduled for next year, now that I think about it!
Here’s to a fun year!


We just booked tickets for the Hobbit movie on the opening weekend.
We’ll be having a fun afternoon – we liked the Lord of the Rings movies a lot when they came out – and perhaps go out for a bite afterwards.

And we’ll be seeing the movie in 3D in an imax cinema…


Today I made the effort the put all the social and fun events planned in my notebook (I use Awesome Notes for that, so pretty ;))
And suddenly my life no longer seems boring and non-fun.

I think we’re on the right way!


I invited my husband to a nice dinner yesterday to start his birthday celebrations :)

We tried a new steak house, El Gaucho:

Where we had great steaks and they had a wonderful sauce bernaise! As dessert I had raspberry sorbet in rose champagne. I could get used to this :)

Afterwards, we went out for drinks to a nice Spanish bar that serves pinchos – we resolved to try that next!

Little talks

We just bought tickets to see Of Monsters And Men next year.

Woohoo! I hope that is going to be great fun.


We spent a fun afternoon at the local autumn fair.

We saw more whirlpools and lawn mowers than we would ever buy, watched the fun fair and saw wares from around the world :-)

And of course we saw the RC car race :-)

Iceland calling

Ooh, I received a postcard from 43T friend Forester321

What a nice card and a wonderful reminder of the great community and friends here!

Thank you!

Bear in the window

It’s the newest rage in the news:

It’s a bear in a window in Vienna. He already has quite a lot of fans!

Ain’t he cute?
