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.

used to ham radio

i have a ham radio license as a technician level ..i have had a licensce since 1978…still got it…this 43 site reminds me some of talking on amateur radio..i used to talk with people by morse code..i never used voice much…morse code was favorite…i could talk by code to people hundreds of mikes away..for example ilived in indiana and talked to Leadville colorado,chicago,memphis,florida routinely…you send a message then they would send back…the cheers are kind of like that,,,they have a self perpetuating aspect…you cheer you get,,,you invest that cheer and here comes more cheers…sometimes i would talk to one person and as soon as finished there would be two more transmitting code ready to interact…time passed so fasdt ..i had to do it late at night because of work and my daughter was only about three…stuff to do had to do it late at night…cheers travel so fast and they build up…they come fast and go fast if applied right away it sems,,,funny…73 in ham radio means well wishes to you so 73’s coming your way..hahah..the letter k at the end of a transmission of code means “done for this part or now” something like that…if i put my call sign on here you would know my full name and my exact adress because each radio operator has a unique call sign ..only one in the world likeit…someboby on eartth may have the same name as you ,but no way have the same call sign it is absolutely unique…73s to you

this cheer bombing run is so funny…i think we could generate cheers
by this run untill the end of the earth…my cheer board now just shows purple sangfriod face avatars….cheer bombing run is so funny..hahahaha…i better go eat and attend to some things before this room gets filled up with purple avatar face cheer bombs all over the floor and starts mixing with my word pile ,then my writing could be purple face words and hard to read..har har har har meow ..gotta go do some chore stuff…aaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrrrggggggggggg, har har har

cheer-bombing runs

when reciprocated and go back and forth produce massive massive results…i quickly run out of targets to bomb it is so massive…har har har…har har har is so funny to me the comic book laugh …so funny so ridiculous way to symbolize happy laughter…har har har har

i once heard it said

that if a person wants to be an artist and they are not painting now,they dont really want to be an artist..that seems powerful to me..i think of it when i can ..if i want to …whatever…then i better be whatevering right now whenever i get a chance to..that seems to be powerful idea to me…because i can stick in any goal/words/desires and it immediately has a clarifying pull on forces me to say “well ,boy,why arent you practicing jumping off little buildings and suiting up in your cape right now if you really do want to be superman…huh Clark Kent? chuckle…very very clarifying..makes me clear very fast,it is so revealing…do i really want to do the thing???danke leben

tractorum has gotten 3 cheers on this goal.
