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.

Done, yay!

I wonder if I’ll manage 75???

50) Kitty and the Midnight Hour

Thank god, finally something that flowed and was fun to read. Good supernatural chick-lit. Kitty has a sense of humour, is nicely sarcastic and doesn’t take herself to seriously. I liked that in this first book of the series vampires and werewolves are coming out of the closet. In all the other books with this plot line that I’ve read, the books always start after the fact. It is quite refreshing to see how the critters of the night actually deal with it. Book two is on order and book three is already on my shelf…

49) Nemesis by Bill Napier

Snore, don’t bother! Imagine Tom Clancy having one of those reaaaally long explanations of something in another one of those military conspiracy things, add a little Armageddon to it and a small helping of Angels and Demons. And you get a fairly boring read with a very improbable and silly plot twist at the end, that makes you go “Huh?”. Sorry, put me to sleep several times this week…
