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.

Ich wolle Deutsch lernen! My goal now is to be able to read the easiest simplified books I can find (600-1000 words).
I’m trying to do it all on my own, in the less expansive way, but it’s hard! Anyway today I bought a dictionary and as soon as the german cultural center in my city will open, I will suscribe to its library… I hope this will keep me motivated!

Here there are some FREE great sites you could find interesting:

http://www.german-grammar.de/ (in english, very well done, it gives lot of importance to contrastive grammar)
http://www.ex.ac.uk/german/abinitio/index.html (a well done course by Exeter University)
http://webgerman.com/german/webexercises/index.html (interactive german exercises)
http://german.about.com/library/blwort_beg.htm (on http://about.com/, with word of the day, grammar, good links etc.)
http://www.deutsch-lernen.com/ (free, well done…but the lessons are all in german!)
http://www.dw-world.de/dw/0,2142,2548,00.html (Deutsch…warum nicht?)
http://www.passwort-deutsch.de/ (exercises in German from the book Passwort Deutsch)
http://62.48.71.204/sixcms/list.php?page=lernen_thn (interesting lessons and exercises, everything written in German)
http://www.learn-german.com/tests/deutschtest3-4.htm (you can take for free a German test there)

And here there are some easy things to read:
http://faculty.acu.edu/~goebeld/maerchen/maermenu.htm (learning German through fairytales…simplified)
http://www.lkmc.ch/artikel/kleiner_baer/text.html (Der Kleine bar und der Regen)
http://www.odaha.com/littleprince.php?f=DerKleinePrinz (Der kleine Prinz, the famous book by Saint-Exupery)
http://www.labbe.de/lesekorb/index.asp?themaid=68 (children histories: Hansel and Gretel etc.)

http://www.wordchamp.com/lingua2/Reader.do (online, useful for translation, try it)

Well, that’s all for now, if you find something useful for you, send me at least a cheer, please! and also if you know other useful links share them here.
