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.

27 July

Saw a bald eagle aloft – starkly white fore & aft, dark in the middle – quite high up & calmly circling in thermals – despite being pursued & harassed by gulls. smile

26 July

Saw a great blue heron, standing totally still, stiffly erect in pose – like a tall thin monk in a blue-gray robe – his beak poised: although he was (I’m sure) actually hunting, it seemed as though he were a sentinel, placed there on the jetty to greet our boat. smile

My first "Eurostyle" game

was Carcassonne – the award-winning tile-laying strategy game with a humungous number of extensions & variants. The original & first extension are still huge favorites of mine. smile

follow these personal rules on 43 things (read all 22 entries…)
I've always felt

that it was important for us “regulars” to do our part in “keeping the 43T neighborhood safe” (to use the Robots’ preferred metaphor) & I have tried to be fair, logical, & consistent in applying the guidelines that they gave us for reviewing flagged accounts.

However, I don’t know that I’ll be able to do any more reviewing of reported spam & commercial abuse (of which there is d@mned plenty—& more every day sigh)....

Now that the Grey Banner of Doom has appeared (& given its vertical height), it’s become virtually impossible to review flagged accounts in a timely or streamlined fashion.

But I guess that doesn’t matter anymore anyway…. wry grin



Monthly allergy shot (read all 37 entries…)
Good health

is important to me, so I’ll continue getting allergy shots regularly as long as they help me to manage symptoms (I just won’t be documenting the process here wry grin).
