comment How to play Facebook videos without Adobe Flash player using Firefox?
That is a real shame, that such a company still asks for plugins. Hope they will not ask for Java next year.

comment Why is a 7zipped file larger than the raw file?
Explanation using basic logic only: Compression finds for a raw file a UNIQUE zipped file, and for zipped file UNIQUE raw (uncompressed) original file. Imagine you have 8-bit files and want to compress them into 5-bit files. There are 256 unique 8-bit files, but only 32 unique 5-bit files(!) So some 8-bit files must be compressed into the same 5-bit file(!). And if 2 different raw files compressed into same ZIP file, which one do you want to get after decompression? For any zipping method, if there exist files that become smaller after zipping, there must exist files, that become larger(!)

comment LAME library in Audacity
Wow, 3.99.3 works! thank you :) I was testing LAME 3.99.5, but it didn't work. By the way, there is a bug that LAME adds 0.05s of silence to the beginning of each MP3 file. But it is a feature - lame.sourceforge.net/tech-FAQ.txt
