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.

amboxer21I am a Gentoo user now and have left arch behind.

I ended up migrating to Gentoo. Which is a much harder install then Arch! I have come a long way 15 months ago

So I made this a while ago. I decided its time to stop wanting and do something about it! I really didn’t have the 2-3 grand(2-3 Thousand dollars) to drop on a sleeve. So I decided to buy a gun and do my own. I’ve been drawing for 13+ years anyway. So I figured why not.

I went with Invader Zim as the theme. Its been 2 weeks and I have 20% of my arm done. From my elbow down. I dropped $100 dollars so far for the kit. Ink, power supply, peddle, gun, transfer paper, etc. Best $100 I’ve ever spent!

I still need to add the Opal blue to his eyes. The bottom line to his left eye(your right). And finish the yellow back ground. 2 years ago

So, I have come a long way from when I first started! I am currently proficient in C programming, Bash, Awk, and GTK GUI programming. I am learning 32 bit Linux NASM Assembly, and python.

I’ve dabbled in Java, Ruby, Haskel, JQuery, and Django.

I know the basics of CSS, HTML, and JavaScript.

I’m awesome on the command line! I have wrote 2 cool programs so far.

One is a daemon that runs on boot every 60 seconds. It monitors tcp and udp ports for suspicious open ports. If a suspicious port is open it launches a UI with a scrollable textview widget with a list of open ports and process info. Also has a kill button, confirm button and a button to kill the running processes.

The other program I am still working on. It displays a password prompt when a USB device is plugged in. If password is correct, then the FS is mounted. Else, it continues to display the prompt. I am using udev rules to control the device.

Hopefully in

So I’m learning NASM Assembly for Linux. I’m balancing C programming, GTK UI programming, AWK, Bash, NASM, and socket programming all at once. I’m coming along really good! 2 years ago

Something you had to enjoy because you need to be persistent and constantly dig in those books! If you try to learn and get board and off focus…don’t waste your time! And having an iq above average would help lol 3 years ago

I have a 200 word vovab as of now. If i can help you in anyway, please let me know! 3 years ago


amboxer21Working on it

Going to take the basic TCP server model in C and add a select function. Turning it into an asynchronous server from a synchronous. A basic TCP server model creates a socket, binds to a well known service/port, listens for an incoming connection, accepts an incoming connection, and closes when finished. Only one connection at a time is allowed with this basic model. But with the select function you can accept multiple connections. Let’s do this! 3 years ago

I am writing it at the moment. Anytime I feel sad or angry I channel that into words and write. It should only take 6 months to do. I have a lot to write about! Being a boxer, been sky diving, owning a dirt bike, having a heroin addicted mother who’s is prison for 3 years and a little bro who’s doing 8 for armed robbery and a sister with a 3 year old son and a daughter on the way while using heroin too. And me myself having been to prison for 7 years, juvenile life…. Gotta think of a name for it too! 3 years ago
