Sound recorders ...

Anybody care to suggest a cheap (free?) replacement for the Sound Recorder that comes with Windows? Frankly, I don't mind using it, but I can't seem to get it to record more than 60 seconds at a time, although it seems to be able to append additional files (which works fine for my poetry reading, having handy "staza gaps" to use for connecting points) all I want. It would be nice if there was a slightly more flexible version. Anybody have any suggestions?

And, wow ... those .wav files are friggin' HUGE ... the 80-second poem file I just did is over 13mb in the .wav format, but only 548kb when converted over to .mp3! One of the issues that I'm presently dealing with (see previous post) is that when I upload the .mp3 file to WebLogImages, it changes it to a nominal .wav file ... although the size remains the same. Now, I can get this to play in Windows Media Player, but not in WinAmp for some reason unless I manually change the extension back to .mp3 (which then plays fine), which is a bit of a pain in the butt!
