How does google define toil?

I’ll save you a step. Or two.

So what is toil? Toil is the kind of work tied to running a production service that tends to be manual, repetitive, automatable, tactical, devoid of enduring value, and that scales linearly as a service grows.

Emphasis mine.

Look at code here 👇 inside *Adrift is longer than a tangent. Maybe I should rename those to be opposites though.

It's very easy to make a css class and style that.

Well that isn’t working. Fuck.

In case I haven’t document this. I want to MDX work. I mostly want the <JSX /> If I had an AST to manipulate, and .whoa files were auto-formattable, I think I could trivially do things like change the color of something in the browser and have it reflect in this here .whoa file. This might need needs to be thought out some more, it is somewhat along the lines of what the notion editor is doing.

I think auto-formattable is maybe the only thing whoa is missing for this to already be the case.

I may have lost some writings about the beginning of debugging. Anyways, here’s an idea. Flame charts to demonstrate the thought processes.

Google Home not responding
  Say Hey Google multiple times /x/ Check that the device is plugged in. This is basically check for power. Check that the electricity is moving through the wires. 🔌⚡️. Is the thing {on, live}(?) /✅/

Why is it so easy to get caught up in processes and tooling in tech and not see the forest for the trees?
