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 broadband
iBurst

I am not subscribing to my 24/7 broadband connection in my apartment yet. I am sharing my wireless iBurst (www.iburst.com.au) connection I use for work whenever I am in the apartment. My Ilokano genes won this time.



buy a 20" imac (read all 2 entries…)
not today

i guess i have to suffer more mac-envy now. i decided to buy a dell inspiron 6400 laptop instead. it is the cheapest laptop with an intel core duo. for someone moving a lot like myself, i dont need to lug around a desktop. now i have two laptops: one for work and the other one for my personal stuffs.

i now use my new laptop to watch and record free-to-air hdtv. im trying to set it up as a PVR (personal video recorder) so i can just watch my favorite tv shows on the weekend. that’ll be in another blog.
