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.

get my MCSE
2 Exams Down = 6 to Go for the MCSE: Security

2 exams down 70-270 and 70-290, should be taking the 70-291 exam next week. Looks like I’m going to take the stair stepping program and work to get my MCSA, then MCSA: Security, then My MCSE: Security Specialization. So Good Luck To Me!

drink more water
I do this but always could drink more.

I already make it a point to drink water everyday, but I feel it’s one of those things I can always do more. I’m working on keeping a sports bottle with me while at work so here’s to me.

sing my heart out

Ok, I went to Karaoke for like the 4th time in my life, the last time I went I was reserved and shakey. This time, though, I sang my heart out…
Set List…
Times Like These- Foo Fighters
The Three Little Pigs- Green Jelly (formerly Green Jello)
The Hand that Feeds- NIN
Walk Away-Epidemic

I sang until I couldn’t sing no more, probably should have stopped on the second song, but it was so fun that I couldn’t help myself… Next thing on to do list, Start A Band, THEN THE WORLD!!!!! MUWHOHAHAHAAHAHAAHAAAA

See all entries ...
