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.

Rockbox: a great replacement for the iPod's firmware

Even tough the iPod is a nice piece of HW, its FW isn’t as powerful or as flexible as I believe it should be.

A simple example: it just doesn’t play OggVorbis files. I wrote to Apple’s support site asking when they were going to update the firmware to allow such an elemental task. More than one year has passed by, and an answer I haven’t received from them.

A couple of days ago I installed rockbox in my iPod mini, and new life entered my little blue music box. I recommend every iPod owner to explore rockbox:

dominate gentoo linux

The most flexible, professional, dependable Linux distribution I’ve put my dirty hands on.

Great machine, but...

I recently received an iPod mini (blue) as a gift from a friend. Great machine, indeed. Only problem I can see is that it doesn’t play Ogg Vorbis files (at least not without previously installing linux on it).

I really don’t understand the reason why apple just won’t add support for that format, being as it is technically superior to mp3. I wrote to them, and got no reply. Of course, what was I expecting? :)

See all entries ...
