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.

robertpearDIY Roman Blinds - Practical Yet Effective Window Treatments

DIY roman blinds are very practical if only because they are made in fabric, wooden or natural weave. These are manufactured in natural or fabric material weave. These types of roman blinds are stylish and classy, but not expensive, which mean they are considered within the budget of the consumers.

Made with special strings, the roman window blinds are pulled up with pulleys just like the normal type of blinds blinds. The pulley mechanism over the years have quite evolved and become innovative – this transforms the roman type as being more practical and effective.

Normally, DIY roman blinds are lowered or raised – it depends if you want some privacy or enjoy the hot rays of the sun. If you want to maintain the coolness on your room, they can definitely block out heat that is also coming from the sun. This means that you can depend on them for being efficient in energy. They are made with fabrics or cloth that efficient in filtering the light and are used with blackout linings. Most roman blinds that are manufactured on the United States Gulf Coast area have cotton linings, which work to block almost all of the heat that relentlessly beats the windows.

The operational mechanisms on the DIY roman blinds can be cord operated by hand, chain control or motorized electrically equipped with remote control. When you decide to have the motorized Roman blind, this will greatly add to the overall price of the blinds. In any case, motorized versions of these blinds are not the typical choice of the ordinary consumer or home owner.

Many blind companies will offer their own version of these types of blinds. However, the styles are very limited with these companies and usually the workmanship is far from quality. They will have a cheap look to them. It is always better to stay with the hard window blinds when ordering from a blind company. Fabric Roman blinds should be ordered from a good interior decorating store or the Interior Designer herself. The Interior Designer is always the best choice when deciding on what type of look, style, blind or fabric that you should choose for a room shades. 6 months ago

I’ve been considering this idea for the better part of a year now. I think it’d be a good ‘starter’ tattoo as it’s pretty simple and small and I’ve even been to get it done but got a little worried about the placement after the artist told me I’d have trouble with it healing (especially as this was right before attending a few dirt and mud ridden festivals).

The design is ‘IV’ – as in roman numerals for ‘4’, nothing with intravenous connotations… My reasoning behind this is that the number seems to reoccur quite a lot in my life, for example every section of my birth date ends in 4. I also have a lot of memories atached with the number; the fourth time my best friend and I ever met we went on a week long tour, just the two of us. We’ve been pretty much inseparable ever since!

I was 14 (again, ENDING in 4…) when I was introduced to one of my closest friends, who in turn developed a strong bond with 2 of my other friends and we’re still a very tightly knit group of (four) friends to this day.

All I really need to decide on is a font. Far too much of a perfectionist… 10 months ago
