We use the word "boilerplate" a lot at work. It's such a strange phrase that seems like it's probably traveled far from its original meaning, so I looked up what that meaning was.
It goes back to newspapers. Large advertisers and content syndicates would distribute ready-to-go printing plates to local newspapers that could easily just go onto the press and be ready to print without any modification. These plates resembled rolled steel that was used to make boilers.

Side note: how does Taylor Lorenz figure all this stuff out? Does she hang out with high-school kids? Does she have kids herself, and do their classmates warily regard them as snitches who might spill their secrets to adults who read The Atlantic?

So I'm still experimenting issues with an external HDD on Linux and was hoping someone could help me out. Basically, I have a toshiba external HDD that in both NTFS or ext4 copies very slowly like 5mb/s, but if I use it in a Windows OS it copies normally (average 100mb/s). I've tried several ways of formatting in gparted and can't find a decent solution. When I start transferring files to my ext hdd basically it starts at 100mb/s but slowly decreases until it reaches like 5mb/s.

I call that the understatement of the decade.

I had to add a vector image of a CNN model to my poster last week and this repository which has some amazing Latex codes for drawing CNNs saved quite a bit of my time:
This is an excellent testimonial to FOSS systems. Regardless of your thoughts on the quality of the product, people bought these things for $900 American. Now, the company is gone and the servers are being shut down. This formerly $900 device is useless for anything other than parts.
