Development #38

Use anonymous functions

JavaScript allows for anonymous functions, and these should be used whenever possible without putting the project’s maintainability at risk. This way, the interpreter no longer needs to resolve the function’s name.
Be aware that this is only good practice when the function is used once. Any function used more than once should be named.

Design #95

Adapt sounds to the listening environment

Audio files can be large and use up lots of bandwidth. It is therefore important to minimize their size. Choose one of the 3 formats that cover the 3 largest platforms (Windows, Mac OS X and Linux):
- MP3 (MPEG-1 Audio Layer 3) - AAC (Advanced Audio Coding) - Vorbis

These formats apply fine-tuned compression algorithms that greatly reduce file size.
