there isn't a way to change the default filename for recordings, but i have no idea why you would
want to. the format is this: r-yymmdd-hhmmss.mp3 (year, month, day, hour, minute second). there is
now a way to change the directory to either /recordings/ or the directory you were in when you
started recording, but i believe it's only in the daily builds.

i doubt you'll be disappointed.
