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.

Diving is life...all the rest is just a surface interval...

Sooooo things kinda turned around for me when I realized I had a complete illiterate a@#%ole for a boss and ‘manager’. I got my advanced nitrox but my instructor and my fiance’ (who was a divemaster for the same scuba shop) both told me that, I really didn’t have to go any farther. I wanted to get my search and rescue done by Stephen Metcalf because well…hes Stephen Metcalf.

My fiance introduced me to Rob Murphy as well because hes really good at spearfishing. Stephen is awesome and was around a lot.
ok…so im just gonna chill as an advanced open water diver. I dont really need anything more.

So the diveshop scene is over for me.
I really thought it couldn’t get better for me but the owner wouldnt let me dive anymore. and as a deckhand, we dont really get paid. so i didnt see the need to invest anymore of my time with them. I had already done what I wanted.
I was there from late august 2010 to early July 2011.
