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.

Lots of programming practice, reading, research, conversing with my colleagues and build useful applications.

Interesting language btw, but it makes it too easy to get away with a quick hack lol. 2 years ago

Matthew JordanWrote my first perl program

I wrote a Perl program to automate the generation of my aria download file. So now I just create a file with my magnet links, and saves my torrents in the same directory and presto, I have an aria input file ready to go. 2 years ago

Matthew JordanReading "Learning Perl"

I am reading the book “Learning Perl” ISBN:9780596001322. And I am finding Perl to be an amazing language. It’s almost like merging Bash or Zsh with C or C++. I will admit the syntax is necessarily to my liking, but this language is truly amazing. 2 years ago

Mimic WI guess I've probably already done this, practically

I’ve already made a portscanner, and an artificial cow one time, also a lot of scripts like one of 3000 lines. Anyway, I guess I should change this goal to “Use PERL2 years ago
