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.

*Alcohol takes another one.......*

I attended a funeral for an old high school classmate this week who reportedly collapsed at home and was admitted to the hospital with liver failure.

So at the funeral home I talk to one of his best friends and get the rest of the story…....he very recently found out he has HIV and was drinking out of depression…....word was when he got to the hospital his blood alcohol concentration was .46!!

Good ol’ AL…....just as effective as a handgun….and yet another reason to take a hard look at the perils of drinking.

So why am I here at 7:00 in the morning instead of driving to work?

Well that’s easy…’s because I had to take the whole day off without pay to drive over 100 miles round trip and spend $108.00 to have my breathalyzer recalibrated on my truck.

Oh don’t pity me though…..I’m the FUCKUP who chose to drink and drive and am still paying through the nose for it over two years later.

Just do me favor and look at me as an example of how you don’t want to end up.
