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.

Repair & re-string my Guitars

CephlapodBuyers Remorse.

Ever since I had seen Jackson guitars with eerie dess swirl paint jobs I knew I had to have one. After a few years I finally bought one on ebay, knowing I was basically buying it for the paint job considering I already had a few better guitars. I paid more than I should for it and never really played it. It looks nice on my wall.

After finally restringing and fine tuning it noticed it doesn’t play that well, sound that great, or feel that good. Worst of all the I don’t like the placement of the volume knob.

I’ve decided I might as well sell it and break off my compulsive hoarding of material possessions. 5 years ago


CephlapodWishnevsky Harp Guitar

This guitar is a product of shitty craftsman ship. I wish I never bought it. Even with my lack of income right now I wish I had paid 3000 for a good guitar than waste 850 on this one.

While I was tuning it today a zither tuning pin sunk into the body and I cannot retrieve even with pliers. The zither (super treble) nut came loose when this happened. Now I must make a hole in side of the guitar to access the tuning peg. 5 years ago


CephlapodA lot more work than it seems.

First off I have 4 guitars that need a fresh set of strings.

I want to install a drop D tuner on 3 guitars.

At least 2 guitars need a good truss rod adjustment.

1 guitar needs a new bridge and nut, both hand carved.

2 Guitars need a new set of pick ups installed.

2 Guitars need electronic work done.

My harp guitar need to be tuned and with 21 string it’s a pretty big job since electronic tuners don’t register the high notes.

And some good news 3 guitars are fine just the way the are. 5 years ago
