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.

thepulsebeatshmph... success?

well, I got the axle and cv boot fixed… which was the part that meant that my car might become un-driveable. however, the O2 sensor failure has turned into something much bigger – not fixed – but that doesn’t make my car not driveable. i have time. still conclude this mission as a success… for now! (: asi es la vida. 3 years ago

Amy BlainOMG

Got the multipoint inspection this morning . . . and did NOT get good news. I have multiple oil leaks and a power steering leak. And she said the 2 words I was dreading the most – master cylinder and valve cover gasket. Of course it’s all apparently VERY bad and needs to be fixed immediately. I’m thinking that student loan is going to be my only option, and I was REALLY trying to avoid taking it. But if it fixes all my problems (not ALL of them, I know, but a fair amount) isn’t it worth it? Does anyone know anything about student loans? Please send me a message if you do – I could really use some additional knowledge. 3 years ago

Amy BlainIt's Called a Multipoint Inspection

I figure the best way to handle fixing das auto (it’s a Ford – I just like saying das auto) is to follow the same pattern I would if I were getting ready to sell it. First, that means a full inspection, or as I was informed this morning a “multipoint inspection”. Well callit whatever you want the thing is FREE! I scheduled an appointment at 10:15 Saturday morning to get a full printout w/quotes. I’m hoping for a happy surprise, but bracing for the worst! 3 years ago
