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.

Danie RouxFinally, thanks to Paypal now accepting us South Africans

Moneybookers is a pain. They charge you a random amount under 2 euro. Then you have to wait to get your credit card statement to see what that was in euro (my online statement only shows it in my local currency).

Once I finally got that magic number, I thought I was sorted. Turns out they then want a scanned copy of the credit card statement. Then I got sort of bored with the whole thing.

Today on a whim I tried to register with paypal again. They allowed me! 10 minutes later I sponsored Vim.

So I could finally donate to the one program which enhances my productivity every day. 8 years ago

Danie RouxIt has now become easy to sponsor!

In South Africa, we can not do Paypal payments. We can however, use, which Vim now supports.

I’ll be sponsoring within the next few days :-) 8 years ago

Danie RouxI love Vim

It is the best editor I’ve ever used. It saves me lots of time daily.

I use it for anything from composing email, to text filtering to Java programming.

Anyway, I want to sponsor Vim development: 9 years ago
