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 a PSP

If you are thinking about getting a PSP, stop thinking and just go get it! It is amazing. The graphics, the sound, the games, the fact that you can go online and surf the web, the multiplayer facilities. Its the slickiest, coolest and most wonderful gadget/system I ever used / owned. Wonderful!

Collect old computers and related stuff
Back in time

I am retro freak. Big time. I love all things that remind me of my youth ( 80’s—90’s). Especially computers, magazines and TV/Movies memorabilia. I have always wanted to buy some old computers to decorate my already packed room, and even use them once in a while.

cocoa application
Developing Cocoa apps is fun

Getting a Cocoa based application from your brain to actually working takes surprisingly little time, and its really easy and fun thing to do.
