I’d love to hear about your old, expired domains and what could have been.
I usually don’t register domains until I actually have some code for them. These were sites I made but shut down before doing much with them:
dme.sg was my dmesg collection/parsing site that could parse dmesg output from a variety of operating systems and catalog them. It was supposed to make it easy to find a laptop or server and immediately know what hardware was in it, whether the drivers worked, etc. It could also help developers find users with a particular piece of hardware to test driver changes on it. I actually made the site but lost interest in it, so I shut it down and let the domain lapse.
deskto.ps was like flickr but optimized for showing large images of desktop screenshots. It had an interface for highlighting sections of the screen so users could say “this is such-and-such app”, “this is adium with such-and-such theme”, etc. Those could be automatically grouped together so you could easily browse all of the screenshots of any particular app. I had an idea to let app developers promote their app on the homepage for X number of days for a fee. I wrote some of the code for the site but never launched it and let the domain expire.
One project I got domains for before coding was sellister.com (and selli.st for short URLs) which was supposed to be my craigslist-dragged-into-the-modern-age site for selling things. I still have the domains but I’ll probably let them expire because this project is too big for me to do.

I think everyone one of us has had plans to fix craigslist. I believe my effort was to be called “kyleslist” (very creative, I know).
Sendunique.com – basically putting templates inside gmail and sending out personalized emails to lots of people, without needing to be a programmer.
Goodmorningcmc.com – daily email service for CMC students. This was actually a thing for a while but not in college anymore.
Otherwise I just put stuff on herokuapp or appspot
