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.

Watch all of Woody Allen's films

Some are Great some are not, but I wouldn’t say any of them are painful to sit through even when they are bad. It’s a really impressive catalog and well worth doing.

learn to roll coins across my knuckles
Just Get a 50 cent piece and practice

I thought it would be harder but that is truely all it took. If the coin falls off your fingers you just pick it up and try again. I’m out of practice now, but once I start doing it it comes right back to me.

watch all six feet under episodes
One of if not the Best Show I have ever seen

It’s an emotional roller coaster ride, and worth every minute. I have never in my life been so attached to fictional characters and doubt I ever will be again.
