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.

MovingAheadSeason 5

Season 5 is awesome as usual. I need to watch an episode a day to finish this goal. Better get started. 7 months ago

brickhorseSeason 8

I’m well into this season now, and it’s weird. Muldur keeps going in and out, and the episodes are not in chronological order so one never knows if “this” episode follows “that” episode, or if it’s before Scully’s new partner “knows” about her, or what! But there are some good episodes. It’s funny how Scully is now taking Muldur’s perspective and her new partner is the skeptic. 8 months ago

brickhorseThe Luckiest Man in the World (Season 7)

I love this episode. It is funny, gentle, and has a great ending that I didn’t see coming. I’ll probably watch it again after I finish this goal. 9 months ago

brickhorseSeason 7 creepy episodes.

I saw two episodes last night that were SOOOOO creepy. However, Scully and Mulder kissed a New Year’s Eve kiss that was very tender. That was worth the creepiness. Last night was a brain eating dude, and zombies. 9 months ago

brickhorseSeason 7

This season started off great! 9 months ago

brickhorseSeason 6

I’m not sure which episode, but it’s one I’ve seen before, the one in the bank that’s like Groundhog Day (Bill Murray). 9 months ago

brickhorseAnother creepy episode

A spoiled little girl and her creepy doll with eyes that move, “Let’s play!” I turned it off halfway through because I thought I would rather watch something positive. Then I turned TV off completely and watched the inside of my eyelids! Much more productive! 9 months ago

brickhorseAlmost done with Season 4

I’m so glad I didn’t watch this when it was on TV because the commercials would have been so annoying. 9 months ago

brickhorseCreeped out again

Last night I watched too many X-Files episodes: three. I realize that two is my limit because they are so creepy sometimes. I saw one that was a continuation of a previous episode. It was okay. Then I saw the one about the Chupacabra (goat sucker) that was disturbing, probably because it was so close to home. Then the next episode was about a guy who can regenerate his body parts. I should have stopped at the Chupacabra. It was over the top for one night! 9 months ago

brickhorseSeason 3

This was a great season, with a lot of comedy. It was really fun, and dark too of course. Season 4 started pretty dark. Episode 2 “Home” creeped me out! “In a small, otherwise peaceful town, the agents investigate the death of an infant with disturbing birth defects, and the trail leads to a clan of inbred, genetic mutants.” None of the other episodes so far creeped me out like this one did. I went to bed, couldn’t sleep, had to read a positive book to relax, and had dreams all night about having to help Scully escape from a variety of situations. Ha! 9 months ago

brickhorseS3 E2

Finally! Some meaty explanation to sink my teeth into. There’s enough unknown that allows for imagination and speculation on my part (being a writer, easy to do). Floyd Red Crow Westerman is awesome! I like how he told off the cigarette smoker, in a previous episode, just before getting hit in the head with a rifle butt. Just like the good old days, huh, Floyd? 9 months ago

brickhorseS2 E1

Only 8 more seasons to go! I realize that many of the X-File episodes I have seen were reruns of the first season! Crazy! I’m looking forward to new episodes in the upcoming seasons. 9 months ago

brickhorseS1 E18

Got up to episode 18 in the first season, which I plan to watch tonight. E17 was another tease episode, with nothing really happening except for a lot of running around. I’m waiting for us to get something! Dagnabit sum bucko! 9 months ago

brickhorseS1 E15

This weekend I watched quite a few episodes. The series is getting a little more sophisticated. I laugh at Scully’s white pantyhose, and the pumps she wears to run through the woods at night with her gun drawn! They’re probably those Free Spirit pumps that were so popular with pump-wearing women in the 1990s. So 20th century! I didn’t wear them. 9 months ago

brickhorseWatched S1 E3

Last night, it was a creepy episode. I think I had seen it before, or else being a writer means I knew what was going to happen next. Still, it creeped me out. Scully, at the end, was stalked by the actor who also played the creepy officer in The Green Mile. I think because it was that particular actor, who has always played creeps in the films I’ve seen him in, the episode was particularly scary. 9 months ago

brickhorseS1 E2

Watched this one today. This is such a tease, with nothing really happening and nothing explained. As usual. Argh! X-files! 10 months ago

brickhorseIn process!

With Netflix, I have started this a week ago. Fox and Scully are so young! This will be a fun, achievable goal. 10 months ago

EuphemiaJust the film now...

We finally finished series 9 last night….it has been emotional! We have watched the entire last 2 series in the last few weeks. It was good to get some momentum up. I am not going to mark this as complete until we have watched the second film. Will probably do this next weekend. 10 months ago

creativecallingBought the entire box set at Christmas...

... And I am currently about half way through season four. It’s amazing how much I’ve forgot some I watched it the first time round. Abd I also forgot what great characters Mulder and Scully are. 10 months ago

EuphemiaSeries 8 was just superb!

When my husband got the box set of series 8 but told me that Mulder was gone and agent John Doggett had taken his place, I thought it would be rubbish and started watching it like it was a chore…on the contrary! I loved every episode! Possibly my favourite series yet! 11 months ago
