hiya there people, if you make a and it has a "search" function and that search function can run upwards of a minute, maybe don't make it a blocking operation. let the user "cancel" it (doesn't necessarily have to be an explicit cancel function, could also just let them navigate away and silently stop the search job)

this doubly applies if you are doing long network operations
