Do not shame folks for being averse towards the terminal. Not everyone is as adventurous or (gasp!) fearless as you.

Annoying that there's now a big black bar at the top of Pinafore when using Firefox Preview in PWA mode.
@nolan have you seen this happen before?
Well, I did it. I went off and wrote my own emoji picker.
I never really wanted to get this deep into emoji, but I started this project two months ago and… somehow, here I am. https://nolanlawson.com/2020/06/28/introducing-emoji-picker-element-a-memory-efficient-emoji-picker-for-the-web/
