It's a countdown to the inevitable death of ie11. It started as little joke that turned into 12k site views per month, 15$ month in ad revenue (it's not much, but a lot more than I expected), used to justify some companies dropping support and was used as a source in a few popular blog posts (oops). I never thought anyone would really care about this, but I'm glad :). The funny thing is that the reason I joined Dev was because I read a tutorial on hear about building countdown timers.

it was really fun to build and it was really fun working with other devs to make it better :)

A close second is recipe ipsum, I was designing a recipe website for fun and I wanted to add a fake recipe in the design, but couldn't find any, so I built this and it turned out to be a lot funnier than I expected. It was super fun to build and to think through. I have more plans for it in the future. I want to to turn the core of it into an api and build a few other silly projects around that api.
