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.

MCE will never have digital input

In canada, there is no way to digitally tune encrypted content inside of mce 2005 or vista. Bummer! All that spiffy technology and you get to watch 480i glory.. Maybe I can survive with the OTA HDTV and watch the glorific 2channels available here.

not all debt is bad

this entry should be changed to eliminate bad debt. I’ve been learning a lot about what money it’s responsibilties and it’s inheriant dangers including saving for your future. I realize that not all debt is bad. But to be clear all rolled over Credit Card debt is very bad unless you are exploiting the extra low 3% introductory rates. I’m glad to report I have several CC but 0 amount due to credit card companies!

er 16k and dropping?

oih my I’ve gone up in what we owe. Hoever I’m being loaned about 12k and not to mention a 50k interest free loan that I can use to leverage my Credit cards.. done to around 3-5% from the scary 20%/annum..
Why can’t regular people loan their money at 20% per annum! We’d all be rich and have a greater insentive to save.
