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.

I tried this one again yesterday, thinking I’d be able to cross it off the list quickly. But it still came out hard and I hardly beat it at all!! My idea of fudge is that it’s softish, I’m struggling to find an equivalent texture… caramel? but not as chewy. This went hard again. Maybe I boiled it a little too long. OK, note to self: next time, check it after 8 mins of boiling. It’s likely to be another couple of months before I try this again. At 3 cups of sugar a pop, I think it needs to be spaced out!

fudge attempt #2

The first time I tried to make fudge, it was sloppy and grainy. Today’s attempt was hard and crumbly, but better than the first…much closer. I think I beat it just a second too long at the end. It’s still going to go to school. the kids won’t car, it’s mostly sugar!

I'm going to have

another go at this one…tomorrow. I’ve found some great tips on youtube, so if I make a decent batch, I will send them to my daughter’s break up party at school on Friday.
