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.

TartsyShow me some gifts...

Hubby’s 40th birthday is on the 13th and we’re having an informal dinner with his family that night. Over the last six months or so I’ve created a basket of gifts to give him for his big day. I’ve already posted the box my FIL made but here’s stuff I’ll be wrapping this week. I’m trying to remind him that he’s still young at heart…

From left to right: 73 t-shirt (as seen on Big Bang), a Wii arcade game, Robot Chicken Star Wars DVD, Darth Vader light saber LED flashlight (he is on the dark side now – heehee), handmade ceramic mug, an assortment of magnets, and Icons by Jim Lee. 17 months ago

Faustusli'l niece

is very active. Nothing stops her from jumping around all day every day; well, nothing except a sheet of bubble wrap! It changes her personality and reorders her priorities (popping comes first). Her mom doesn’t approve pacifiers… but someone supplies her with the controlled substance! :P17 months ago

TartsyShow me book cases...

When D & I got together he was insistent that we have many book cases. Since I love books there was no disagreement from me and we preceded to build a wall for books. This is part of our dining room and you can also see the Grandfather clock. Over the years, we’ve bought less books because I utilize the library so frequently however that’s not to say we haven’t filled them out with other stuff… 2 years ago

TartsyShow me your toes...
