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.

Same day continued

So I was down to 400 and then I won 2800. I tipped 92.25 on a 7.75 beer to my friend Will. Need to be rescued. Currently at 3500. If I hit 4000 I’m leaving.

Same day

I think I might need to be rescued. I was down to 500 and then low and behold I’m back up to 1750. So much for the self exclusion program. I win jackpots and it’s fine. Granted I don’t use my real name.

I have 1198. An hour ago I had 3000. I’ve consumed 3/4 of a samosa and 4 1/2 beers. To leave with what I started with yesterday I need to make 12 dollars. I’ve lied to my parents and aunt about where I am. I again used Heathers name to win a “jackpot”. (only 1080). I’m no further ahead and I’m tired. I’ve worked pretty much all this year with less than 2000 paid down even though I’ve made around 20,000. Want to be me?

6 days clean, including a Sunday and a Friday night so that’s pretty awesome. Thinking about winning jackpots and using other peoples names makes me anxious.
