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.

I've been putting this...

off for so long, that my situation has changed!
Since I need a new cell phone too, I’m considering buying the newest coolest iphone 3GS.
It’ll probably be an overkill, but I’m almost convinced.

Here are the main reasons for the transition from pod to phone:
- Having 2 separate machines is NOT a good idea for the untidy one who needs to dive into the humongous handbag ALL the time.
- More than 2/3 of the cost will be covered by a discount coupon from the telephone company. The discount is not good for an ipod.
- I really really really NEED the wi-fi feature for when I’m at home and hubby’s taken over the home computer. With a few apps my life will get SO much easier. And there will be significantly less friction and resentment
- I will be able to take pictures and actually do something with them.

I am totally excited, and my only question right now is: black or white?


I asked about some prices @Multirama (big electronics chain in Greece).

- Ipod touch black (32 GB) 389 euros
- Ipod nano MB909Z (16 GB) 212 euros
- Ipod nano MB739Z (8 GB) 159.90 euros

I’m not sure if this is a good deal or not.
I’m not even sure which one I want.

But the store is even willing to give me full refund after 1 week if I choose to return it.
