@nev hmmm, i wonder if this works in Plan 9, with its unicode support and whatnot
@grainloom please report back
@kensp hmmmmm. I can enter emoji in the terminal. And the elementary font is Open Sans which I think has emoji support. But I'll give some different fonts a try!
@nev i need to find out if arch based distros (i use manjaro) allow emoji in the hostname. want!!
@nev @elementary in theory, only ASCII letters, numbers and the hyphen are permitted in hostnames. There is Punycode for encoding Unicode characters in domain names, but unlike browsers I don't think your terminal will decode Punycode as Unicode, because you might need to pipe that hostname into a program that's expecting a valid ASCII-only hostname. More info: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Punycode?wprov=sfla1
@leifurhauks @nev @elementary I was thinking you might be able to get away with dropping in unicode by hand and seeing what breaks horribly, ie unicode 0x1F914pad rather than COLONthinking_faceCOLON (which is what your post ended up with). You may also have better luck making something up based on idea from https://cutekaomoji.com/misc/table-flipping/ instead of emoji directly.
