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.

the inflammation seems to be decreasing!

I don’t know if it’s because I’ve been incredibly sick with brochitis-sick enuf to miss four days of work,and I know my immune system is overloaded, but the water on my knee is disappearing and my hands are way less swollen. Also upped the methotrexate dose to 10 pills per week. Maybe this will do the trick! Yeah!

kinda discouraged...

my knee is more swollen than ever. i am continuing to exercise anyway. i wish the methotrexate would kick in. hopefully soon.

it might be starting to work!

today i noticed that my left middle knuckle and left knee are a tiney bit less swollen and painful. maybe 8 tabs of methotrexate are a more appropriate dose.

upped the dosage of methotrexate......

left knee still VERY swollen. hope this kicks in. i know it’s slow-acting medicine, but i need to get on with life!!! (i’m exercising regardless of the swollen knee – doc permitted this. :))

took 2 doses of ibu today

but about 10 hrs apart. maybe i need to take them closer together to get the swelling down. at least i’m not having any pain.

my knee is swelling up again

gonna start taking ibuprofen regularly until the mtx kicks in

feeling a little better

i started exercising. just a little. hopefully the slow acting drugs will take effect soon.

getting some relief!

took my mom christmas shopping last night even though my knee was blown up like a balloon. Pretty tired and frustrated not being able to get the cortisone prescription for 6 hrs after doc faxed it. had to call doc at least 10 times to have him get thru to walmart. anyway, cortisone is ALREADY helping and i am glad i didn’t get my knee drained like last time. now for the methotrexate and folic acid to work. i want to start exercising, so it’s imperative that i can move well! and comfortably!
