comment Keep the frame background in minislides
Just as something to keep in mind: this won't honor the \graphicspath for the thumbnail backgrounds so the backgrounds better be in a consistent place (I hardcoded my path into the \pgfdeclareimage call which is ugly but works). Related: sourceforge.net/p/pgf/feature-requests/41

revised What are all the font styles I can use in math mode?
IIRC, someone expressly changed the first image to a scaled-down version in the interest of loading times. However, at the latest since having a 4K monitor, this seems like a serious insult to my eyes so I changed it back.

comment How do I manually split a paragraph without \afterpage?
@Mico Apparently, memoir is not the only class affected but KOMAScript as well. I just stumbled on this question: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/139834/…

@cslstr Looks promising but when I pass \picturepage to \AtBeginShipoutNext, I get a Not in outer par mode error :/

comment How do I manually split a paragraph without \afterpage?
@Mico it seems that changing geometry in an \afterpage is to blame. This is a relatively new feature of the geometry package so maybe nobody noticed this bug yet. \afterpage{\newgeometry{textheight=\paperheight,textwidth=\paperwidth}\null\res‌​toregeometry} will already produce a similar behaviour, adding a \clearpage after \restoregeometry will mess the page up exactly as my package does.

@Mico I agree, it is. Unfortunately, memoir is so huge that it's probably hard to pinpoint what part exactly is to blame.

revised Dedicated pages for figures featuring automatic fit-to-page scaling and automatic portrait/landscape selection
maybe I should remove the afterpage here because it breaks the whole thing with memoir, see http://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/180290/how-do-i-manually-split-a-paragraph-without-afterpage

tiny fix, sorry I can't mark this as "don't bump" :/

comment How can I reproduce this beautiful table of contents?
I just want to remark that for most theses this structure is too simple. This is clearly the TOC of a book that is a collection of chapters by different authors so the requirements are different. But if you're sure that nobody would ever want to look up the page number of a particular section or even subsection then sure, go for it :)

comment Too long website as footnote results in `Overfull \hbox`
I would only do that if you're really really sure that the reader won't be irritated by the hyphen at the end of a line (like when you explain the line breaking behaviour at one point in the document). I think the author of the url package made a really smart choice when he decided not to allow line breaks after hyphens.

comment Too long website as footnote results in `Overfull \hbox`
@RStudent You probably also get the "underfull \hbox" error as you did for your manual fix. The sad truth is that there just aren't enough opportunities for line breaks to typeset this with a fixed line width. URLs are notoriously tricky here. What I would do in your case is to set the whole footnote as \raggedright or \RaggedRight (from the ragged2e package ... shouldn't do much of a different here).
