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.

calypteThe universe is telling me something

This is an utterly gross story, so of course I had to share! ;)

A few drinks after work with the girls turned into a LOT of chat. Late back, tipsy – oh, go on then: haven’t had a chippy in aaaaaages!!

Now, I know fine and well I take my life into my own hands in ‘fish and chip’ shops, seeing as fish makes me quite ill. Haggis is fine, though – hah!! So, got home, started tucking in. Y’know, it smells funny but then she did put about quadruple the usual amount of sauce on it. But, y’know… funny funny. Fishy, even. Of course I’m utterly paranoid, but… Hmm.

Half a dozen chips in I thought, I’d better not risk this – and besides, it’s particularly unhealthy at the best of times, and rather against this goal. And as started scoping it up to head to the bin, what do I find in my chips? Fish bone.

Boak, gip gip, boak – and spew. Sorry, had to be done :P

Methinks this might have just ended any appeal for chip shop chips, ever :( 3 years ago

calyptePhotographic evidence

And oh hell no way I’m posting it!!

I’ve read so many stories where people lost the blubber after seeing an unflattering photo of themselves – well, got a stack of those sent to me yesterday from last week’s night out. And, urm, eeeek!! :( I look like a naturally slim person (I think that might be the height, right enough) carrying awkward bundles of flab that really don’t sit on my frame at all – not good.

So… until the assignment is done I refuse to throw any energy at this at all. Which means… tomorrow??

And I’m keeping those pictures! 3 years ago
