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.

vannyabought the new pulls

I bought the new drawer pulls for my desk today. i was at lowes looking for supplys for my guinea pig cage project and they didnt have everything i needed so i ended up getting side tracked by the knobs i was lucky enough to find what i was looking for way cheap so im happy now all i need to do to install them is barrow my dads drill cause the holes from the pulls on there right now dont quiet match up but for now just putting new pulls on it will make it look a million times better and then after that its just mainly painting it oh and i need to cut out the underside back when i do… should really at the very least sand down the top also… still for now the pulls will look good! once i manage to get them on there! 3 years ago

vannyaok so heres my thought

I like my desk, the shape and size of it, but it definitely needs some fixing.
what I think I will do…
remove all the hardware
cut back out of under the leg area so that there is room for my laptop cords to come threw but the whole area cut out so theres not some dumb hole there and it looks like its suppose to be that way
sand it all down
fix or replace edging
prime it
paint it
install new drawer pulls

I will need to get my step dad to help me cut the part of the backing off and sand it or use his tools to do it
ill need to buy some primer
i already have the paint so thats done
and i will need to buy 9 drawer pulls

so really i need to find time and help
and buy 9 drawer pulls and primer 3 years ago
