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.

If it's not epilepsy - What is it?
The Crux.

I have blackouts or fadeouts or whatever you call them…

Whatever they are – I cease to belong to reality for minutes at a time? – I’ve had experts tell me what it isn’t, (namely epilepsy, thankfully), but no one can tell me what it is?

This christmas will bring with it the 14th year of these… episodes.

I don’t want a cure… just a name.

Write, Design and Program a Computer Game
By George, He's got it!

Ok… After months of thinking, scrapping and re-thinking every plot I’ve ever conceived… I finally have a working storyline (yay?!).

The name of this eloquaintly, massive waste of time is;

TradePort 13.

It’s a sci-fi horror and fans of star-trek are gonna absolutely, without doubt, hate it to it’s very core!

The Plot;
You arrive at TradePort 13 and are immediately arrested for hauling contraband cargo across the galaxy. Whilst inside your detention cell, everything on the station goes disastrously wrong for all onboard.
Your only objective is to escape the station – Alive!

It’s a cross between a game and an E-book. With multiple choice continuations in the story, mental puzzles and (hopefully), a completely working stats and inventory system.
(At this point; I’d just like to add if there’s anyone out there in the habit of plagiarism, feel free to go ahead and steal this idea, preferably bringing it out before I get the chance to complete it, then I won’t have to waste my time working on yet another N.B.F. -That’s N.B.F. = Natural Born Failure).

- I’m optimistic about this venture – Can’t you tell?. =)
