Mythbusting time!

None of these three tracks are from anywhere near 2013 or 2014. In fact, they are all from the original scoring project for HTTYD. The first track was supposed to be the introduction into the film (up until "The only problems are the pests"), but didn't make the cut (probably because the Alt. intro sounded more appropriate with an oboe, as opposed to a French horn). The second track is the sketch for 2m15 "New Tail," version 1m. You can tell that the instruments are all artificial (as in that they're all computer-synthesized), and the final downward scale for the whistle matches the version 1m conductor's score but NOT the final recording. Similar case for the third track, which is the sketch for 5m41 "Coming Back Around"

I think that you should write about this in the video description to prevent misinformation.

Android Bugs  - 
 
Resharing from another community. This happens on my first-gen Nexus 7 as well, though I haven't spotted it in other apps yet.
 
Anyone else having this issue? The font smoothing is weird for certain weights of the font... Too much hinting (Download the photos and view them at 100%)

And yes, those are my beautiful feet.

Wallpapers  - 
 
Since I'm too lazy to actually customize my home screen right now, I've been trying to experiment with the wallpaper to create some sense of depth. Here's one of my more successful attempts so far--wallpaper scaled up to 4K resolution and then blurred using Lens Blur filter in Photoshop (imitates bokeh that happens in shallow-focus photos). Looks convincing enough to me--what do you think?

Feature Requests  - 
 
First of all, Shutters feature is AWESOME. Love it. But Google Play Music widget gets cropped near the bottom on my beloved Nexus 4.

On a completely unrelated note, it would be nice if we could choose to have our background be stationary so we won't need huge images for our wallpapers.

Has anyone else read this book? It delves deep into the topic of moral psychology, and aims to explain why there is such wide variety of moral rules in different cultures, and also applies it to why genuinely good people are so strongly opposed on topics regarding morality, politics, and religion.

In better words, the author (Jonathan Haidt) doesn't try to explain what morality should be, but tries instead to show how and why people think of this topic differently. One of the smaller passages also goes on to explain why "atheists won't sell their soul to the Devil." It is in my opinion a monumental achievement, and a good source to show that morality and religion are actually not really connected.

Introduce Yourself  - 
 
I turned seventeen less than a month ago, and I have pretty much always been an atheist, or, more accurately, an agnostic atheist.

I grew up for thirteen years in Korea, and as with every nation its culture is fundamentally different from that of where I currently reside (a college town in Indiana). Especially, thanks to its location, Christianity in that region is only around four centuries old. I got to see a wide range of different religions, from traditional Korean ones to Buddhism (which I don't think really should quality as a religion) to Christianity to Islam, etc. and after all that, the one conclusion I could come up with is that no religion is globally true. For example, the Protestant doctrine of Christianity that whether one goes to Heaven or Hell is based solely on one's belief has a genuinely terrifying appeal in the "Western" society since the existence of Christianity has been a given in that culture; but in Asian regions it is easy to raise hard-to-answer questions like "What happened to all the Koreans that died before ever knowing of the existence of Christianity, a.k.a. every single Korean who lived and died before 1603?"

So, although I cannot claim that a deity does not exist (religion is mostly by nature non-provable and non-falsifiable), I find a deity unnecessary in life and nature, and so I consider myself an atheist. Thank God I live in a college town where many people are very, very liberal about things (see the joke there?).

I envy you; I live in the Carolinas, home and neighbor to the most extreme Theists east of Texas.
You are right though, that no one Religion can really explain everything; a good argument to use on "preachy" theists is the old, but still good, one. It goes something like...
Does your god not know about the human suffering? Yes? Then he is not all-knowing. Does he know it, and cannot stop it? Then he is not all-powerful. Does he know about it and have the power to stop it? Then he is not benevolent.

Just set this up in 10 minutes, coming back from the N4's stock launcher. Let's see what happens...

Does anyone have an elegant way to make metronome marks with decimal numbers that also apply to the midi file? The standard "\tempo 4 = 112.5" syntax doesn't work due to the BPM being a decimal. I can manually create a markup to create the metronome marking, but then it wouldn't apply to the midi file. I feel like there should be an easier way to enter decimal metronome marks that I haven't figured out, but I have not seen any examples involving decimal BPMs so far.

Uh, another search shows that tempo message in a SMF is FF 51 03 tt tt tt, where tt tt tt are microseconds per quarter-note. So in theory this allows fine tempo setting in one go. Sorry for not being more helpful.

Interesting finding: on Nexus 7, the stock launcher makes the dock icons smaller than the normal icons. Also, the spacing between the dock and the widget pane is different. You can also see that Action Launcher's expanded folder borders are a bit weird in spacing, which kinda bugs the heck out of me. Has the launcher been tested on tablets?

Yes the app has been tested on tablets. Action Launcher is based on the 4.1.1 AOSP code. I think it was 4.2 where Google shrunk the size of items in the dock a little bit. I can't decide which looks better personally...
