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.

  • ASP.NET is Multilanguage
  • ASP.NET is hosted by the common language runtime
  • ASP.NET is object oriented

    What You Need For ASP.NET 2.0

    File Types in ASP.NET



These are ASP.NET web pages. They contain the user interface and, optionally, the underlying application code. Users request or navigate directly to one of these pages to start your web application.



These are ASP.NET user controls. User controls are similar to web pages,except that they can’t be accessed directly. Instead, they must be hosted inside an ASP.NET web page. User controls allow you to develop an important piece of the user interface and reuse it in as many web forms as you want without repetitive code.



These are ASP.NET web services. Web services work differently than web pages, but they still share the same application resources, configuration settings, and memory.



This is the XML-based configuration file for your ASP.NET application. It includes settings for customizing security, state management, memory management, and much more. Visual Studio adds a web.config file when you need it. (For example, it adds a web.config file that supports debugging if you attempt to run your web application.) When you first create a website, you won’t have a web.config file.



This is the global application file. You can use this file to define global variables and react to global events, such as when a web application first starts Visual Studio doesn’t create a global.asax file by default—you need to add it if it’s appropriate.

My expertise is in CSS and javascript….but there are already a few great books about this, some written by people I know. I wonder if I can find a nitche. 7 years ago

mortaineI have a hard time deciding if it's worth doing

I have written and published two computer books and am working on my third. It’s worth doing, as long as your definition of “worth” has little or no correlation to monetary reward. Sad, but true. However, a computer book is an impressive thing on your resume, and is a great way to become an expert in a subject in 6 months or less.

My advice: If you are going to do this, get the contract FIRST and then write the book. It’s how computer books get written, because most publishers want you to fit your book to their style and format. You get the contract by writing a really good proposal and, in my case, using an agent that specializes in computer books. I go through the Waterside Agency; another really good agency is StudioB. As always, research agencies and publishers carefully. 9 years ago
