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.

Bonnie0511theCourierStarting out ...

I’m quite good at whistling for my dog – a simple two-note tune – but the moment I try anything more fancy, everything goes wrong and I drop as many notes as I hit.

But, sometimes my urge to whistle is just too much and I try it anyway and this can have … consequences. These are not huge consequences, but consequences nonetheless. For example, recently, the urge to whistle hit me while I was listening to the theme from Il Mercenario . I started whistling, and after a while, my sister shouted down to me, ‘Are you whistling?! Because it’s driving the dog mad!’ Poor dog. There’s a lot more where that came from…

Anyway, if anyone who’s further along than me has any tips, I’d be really grateful. Thank you. 7 months ago

Dyuti AnanthMy technique

Keep your tongue mildly moist
Almost(dont actually) touch the tip of your tongue to the roof
Make your mouth small and as if you want to suck some air around
I tried like crazy when i was a kid
Somehow i mnaged it one day after years of trying 2 years ago

lots of practice and a focus on tongue position. high whistle is still sketchy at best but that wasn’t the goal so I’m done :) 2 years ago
