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 cast was better in Soul Calibur IV, but play V anyway.

I am playing Soul Calibur V. I don’t like what was done to the storylines and some of the characters too much (if you’ve followed these Namco fighting games since the beginning, you probably know what I mean about storylines that do not make sense and leaving out favorite characters or aging some but not all characters). I still prefer the cast of SCIV (especially the surprise of Darth Vader!) but I love the create mode and the graphics. I am awaiting SF vs. Tekken.

I am doing this.

I have completed this for the week. I am enjoying a number of games now. Mostly in moderation. This hobby sustains me mentally.

I want to regain my good health!

OK I am healing. My right side, which was more injured, is lagging behind though. I am waiting for my rotator cuff and heel to get better. I want to use this recovery time well…



Look great and feel great every day! (read all 8 entries…)
My face has recovered! 99 to 100% back to normal (facially).

I cannot see evidence of the facial trauma. I can only feel the slightest difference. I have been looking great lately, so that is a good thing!

The Return of Fighting Games

I am doing well with this goal so far. I have moved on to fighting games and martial arts games. I love old school gaming and the gaming genres from before the 2000s.

A lot of progress so far.

I have made a lot of progress but I still have more to do. However, I have exceeded my own expectations. I am doing a better job handling this than I did in 2011.
