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.

organize my iTunes

I started adding songs back into my iTunes, but everything was duplicated 2-3 times. Today I finished finding and deleting all the duplicates… A lot of work but it feels good!


My computer crashed and I lost all 5000 of my songs. Does that count as organizing my iTunes? Because it’s empty now.


Today I got through album art for half of the S artists, but then discovered some songs are labeled “Track 1”, “Track 2”, etc and I have no clue what the album is. Eventually I’ll have to listen to each song, google the lyrics and rename everything.


I finished the album art for all my 5star songs, and I’m half way through album art for all my 4star songs.

I skipped around a bit and did the album art for all my Yiruma songs. It’s really time consuming to look up the album names and art on Amazon :(


I recently bought the newest iPod nano, and discovered that the album art is wacked up now… if every song doesn’t have the art saved individually, the art won’t show up in the “now playing” mode.

That’s so irritating! I’ve already organized my iTunes song titles, album names, and artists, so now all I have left is to fix the genres and album art. I’ve been working on the album art for the past three months in my spare time, and I’ve gotten through the Cs.

virtuosanina has gotten 3 cheers on this goal.
