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.

Pay off all of my debt
Better life

Got lucky. Grandpa payd it all up. Turned my life to the better.

get out of debt
Better life

Got lucky. Grandpa payd it all up. Turned my life to the better.

decide what the hell I would like to do with the rest of my life

Atleast for now :)

Make the most of my 20's
30 sux

So.. Have fun down there younglings ;)

I certainly made the most of it (although it put me into heavy debt and health is so/so) :)


Watch the top 250 movies on the Internet Movie Database (read all 5 entries…)
Finally !!!!

On the 22 August 2008 I managed to strike alle the 250 films that were on the list !!

Not that it mathers, but the final strike was: ‘My Neighbour Totoro’

It’s taken me through a 3 year effort, and the joy is only toppled by the constant changes of the list ;) (Today, there’s 2 films on the list I haven’t seen). I must have seen atleast a hundred movies that have fallen off the list during the years (so, I’v actually watched something like the top 4-500 :))

I highly recommend getting a login @ so you can manage your list, and yes, it is possible :)

I started with all the video-stores, then the library, then remote loans on other libraries, then torrents, and even YouTube !!

Oh.. And it’s worth it.. Only a couple (2-3) of the movies were boring. All were good. Most of them, I would never have gotten to see if they were not on the list..

Spend less time fooling around on the net and more time actually working

NeoPets (yup!)

It’s just all too hard to ignore..

clean my room
Did it !

Yesterday.. Felt good, but worth it ? Hmm..

buy a digital camera
Buy Canon :)

Purchased a compact 8 months ago.
Took 6758 photos the first 5 1/2 months. Then I got a job ;)
Plenty of material though, for the upcoming book and exhibition.

find a job i love
Worth traveling for :)

Even to the opposite side of Earth, as I did.. (Australia->Norway)
The quality and integrity on how things are done here is miles and miles ahead of the apathic employees and dodgy employers in Oz.
Oh, and it’s the money (I had a salary 1/3 of what I am on now, 6 months ago in Oz)

Watch the top 250 movies on the Internet Movie Database (read all 5 entries…)

One year since I last posted, and Iv gone from 156/250 to 235/250.
Those last elusive ones are really hard to get a hold off, and now, with regular updates, it seems even more hard to reach the end.
Ticked one off last night though :)

make someone happy
Once pr day

Keep this on the daily ToDo list ;)
It’ll make you as happy as them, and you’ll have a reason to be so :)

stop being lazy
Not worth it

Finding, and putting effort into a job certainly solves the lazyness. But I wouldn’t say it was less fun before..

get a job

Moved halfway around the globe (as far as one can go one way), Australia to Norway for a job that I now seem to love.

Lovin it..

And if you just wanna share smalltime (or bigtime) photography, spread it to !

Found all the missing films at the library while home (in Norway) on a visit.. Such a buzzy time parteing, that when I left, I’d only managed to catch 3 outstanding ones..
So, back to Oz, and the hardship of finding good movies…

Watch the top 250 movies on the Internet Movie Database (read all 5 entries…)

And going strong !! :)

150 times

And, I’d like to do it again ;) Trust me, it’s worth it..

Get (or renew) a passport
You'r kidding, right

If you haven’t got it yet, better friggin speed things up and get the your bum outside your own little shitty country !!

watch all episodes of lost

Well, by the looks of things, this task will never end, but, atleast, I’v seen every episode so far (up last week’s S02E19)

learn how to sail a boat
Yacht Racing

.. Took over from skydiving as my activity, and replaced it nicely as I was broke, and it didn’t relly cost anythin :)
