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.

I’m a computer science major but my degree is not going to teach me much most of the things that I want to know about computers—ain’t that a blip?

Anyway, its not going to teach me anything about Web Design and what I learned in vocational school has atrophied and is withering. None of my classes will touch on hardware and actually assembling a computing machine.

Its up to me to make sure that I learn all that I need and want to know about computers. Something that I want to learn;

How to Build a Computer
How to Build and Maintain a Website
How to Monetize my WebSite
How to Install a Harddrive
How to Modify a computer
How to use Linux properly
How to Program fluently 1 year ago

I did it! I was trying to clean the junk off my computer so it would run better and faster so I started searching file names and programs online to find out what they were and if they were necessary and if not they got deleted! This was time-consuming but it was a boring weekend anyway and well worth my time and effort! Also I had an update that I could not get installed so I went to the Microsoft website and solved that problem too! They have a great, helpful website by the way! Now everything is up to date, and I’m reaping the fruits of my labor because my computer is running great! I’m proud of myself because I don’t know that much about computers and with some time and research, I was able to do this without too many complications and without using any of those untrusted online programs! 3 years ago

singlandlovinit88A question

Any ideas where/how I can learn to "clean out" my computer to regain speed and reduce crashes? 3 years ago


My computer is sooo slow and I know it needs to be “cleaned out” and I have no idea where to start. I don’t even know HOW to learn more about computers!? I guess I’ll try the good ol’ internet but for some reason I just can’t make sense out of the stuff I’ve read on there so far. Maybe I could try a book from the library? I don’t trust the products on the internet cuz I’ve heard some of them actually add to the problems and they install spyware on your computer! No thanks! 3 years ago
