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.

Delayed Pickup

I was supposed to go and do this today but then the news about the miners being brought up broke. I’m not missing this for the world. I’ve got two months to get my birth certificate but something like watching the miners come up is once in a lifetime.

Tomorrow.



In Two Weeks, This Will Be Off

I got held up by illness on the day I meant to do it but no more. In two weeks time, I am going down there and getting this taken care of regardless of my illness state.



Monday Morning

I’m armor plating myself for a trip to Vital Records to get my new certificate once and for all. I’ve got everything I could possibly need.

The only thing I’m unsure of is whether I should get one or two copies. The point is, its getting done and getting this checked off of my list.



Misprinted Date

Someone at Vital records misprinted the date on mine. Long story involving a lot of childish behavior in people old enough to have known better. My actual file on record has my proper birth date, as does the hospital. It’s now just a question of getting it corrected and getting a full proper certificate rather than a record of birth like I have now.

Things I need for this.

Patience.

New enamel for my teeth.

Patience.

The mental strength of several religions venerable people.

Patience.

About 60.00USD for the fees associated with document correction at various places.

This will get done before the year is out for sure.
