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.

make a video

I’d really like to make a video just to show I could. It would need to be about something though. I’d never “Vlog” I wouldn’t know what to say. It’d just be me on the camera saying “So… this is my video… em… yeah” and then calling this done.

I’d like it to take a bit of work and have a little substance. We’ll see how this goes. As soon as I have an idea I’ll post again.

No more Sims

No more sims until I clean my room!! My sims are all neat and tidy and outgoing, while I live in squalor. It’s just not on. I’m working this evening until 10pm and then I’ll go to sleep. Tomorrow morning I’ll clean my room. I can’t be expected to go an entire day without the Sims, can I?
I’ll set up an entertainment corner in my room. If I buy a monitor I’ll have a desktop pc I can put in there and I can hook everything up to it… It’ll be crazy, like. :D

Finish the five books in the increasingly inaccurately named "Hitchhikers Trilogy" (read all 4 entries…)
Number 5

I’m on the last of the original books now – “Mostly Harmless”. So far it’s quite an enjoyable read. I like how it’s followind Trisha this time. I missed her a bit in the 4th book.
I think I’ll be finished it in the next few days if I get time to read during the day. It’s been easy find time to read recently since I’m sick and can’t really do anything else except read and play The Sims 3.
