I’ve been hacking around with JavaScript for a bit … I know, I know … I can hear Jonathan howl in triumph up north in Copenhagen at this point. Why? Well, I’ve had a nice JS clock on my start page for years, but I also wanted something to emulate the Nixie clock on my desk. When I found this JavaScript project by Čestmír Hýbl the other day, I just knew I had to implement it.

Since I’ve also wanted a countdown timer to track deadlines for a while — yay, the joys of print journalism! — I dug up this code, hacked it all together very haphazardly, and deadline.fab.industries was born. Feel free to use it if you like Nixie tubes and want to track some deadlines.
