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.

...bad me....

I have been offline for a while, just to see how it is to be disconnected from the net. well, therefore progress is rather slow and only 585 cheers achieved so far.



Read all twelve volumes of Anthony Powell's "Dance to the Music of Time" (read all 2 entries…)
....finally started!

wow, was finally abele to track the first three volumes of A Dance to the Music of Time” down, and am nearly at the end of the first volume, called “A Question of Upbringing”. It was actually quite difficult to get into the book, as the language is rather difficult and I took some time to get used to Powell’s style. I have not decided yet if I like it – I defenitely don’t dislike it, but I haven’t been able to determine whether I will truly like it…with some books it just takes a bit longer to truly fall for them?? Anyway, I have still 11 more volumes and some 2000-3000 pages to make up my mind.



list every book I read in 2006 (read all 11 entries…)

36. Katie Fforde – Flora’s Lot
