There are days when you have to make something work, but because of the prerequisites of your project, you know it’s not going to be smooth sailing.

And there you are, coming up with ideas that fail one after the other, make small progress and see your hopes crushed by open GitHub issues from 2017 and unresolved StackOverflow threads, cobbling things together, feeling like the biggest fraud on earth.

And when finally you make that entire pile of 💩 work, you’re not even happy about it and you ship it without even feeling victorious.

And you can’t even get a beer with your buddies because the whole world is in lockdown.

That’s what shipping code for Internet Explorer feels like. Thank you for nothing @microsoft.

I usually love you, but not today.

Ah, and I have a headache now 🙃
