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.

I found where they fence here. I’m interested about Foil fencing, but now it turned out that the teach Épée fencing at there. Oh well. I think it’s worth trying still. Next thing is to find out when they start basic course :) 7 years ago

NekoI finally found someone

Here’s a terrible pic of me in my foil kit taken in December 06

I’m at the end of my second year at the University of Liverpool, I took up fencing at the start of my first year. We train intensively three times a week (although beginners only once a week for the first semester). I find (and most club members agree) that the first year is the hardest and somewhere between that first semester of your first year and your second something clicks and your ability rockets.

My advice: practice, ask for advice from the people who beat you, stick at it and most importantly have fun! 7 years ago


well an instructor taught us basic stuff in Drama 1, so then he invited the best to a club.

now, i go there every sunday. but actually i just started last sunday, and this sunday was easter, and our first bout is next sunday. so i know basically NOTHING!

eek! 7 years ago

OmnemGo With Sabre

Its definitely an interesting sport. I would suggest sabre for anyone trying it out. Its much more dynamic (fun) than foil or epee.

And arish is right, its better to start out early, but nontheless you can become fluid with it in a few months of rigorous training. 7 years ago


I have wanted to learn this since high school, and I actually researched it a bit- I would love to find a place locally where I could indulge this!!! 7 years ago


I’m still learning, but I absolutely love it. 7 years ago


It’s fun to do and quite a work out.
Personally I think it’s easier if you start out younger (early teens) if you are planning to compete.. 7 years ago
