This is a wonderful thing. Thank you!

The only question I have is why is there a lag at all? It would seem that
the buffer should make sure that there is no skip between recordings even
while the file is written to disk and closed.

Is there a hardware technical reason for this or is it controlled by

I've submitted a patch to sourceforge that adds record timer
functionality to the latest AJBR CVS.

Please bear with me as this is the first .C coding/patching/contributing
I've done.

The description on sourceforge:

A patch that adds simple record timer functionality. The
record timer (if set to active) stops a recording at a given
interval and then starts recording again with a new file.

This is useful for long term recordings. The break
between recordings is only the time required to stop and
restart the recording, on the order of 2-4 seconds.

This adds two options to the "recording settings"
menu, "Record Timer Active?" and "Record Timer
Interval." These settings are stored in the hard disk
settings area. Currently there are seven interval settings (5,
10, 15, and 30 minutes, 1, 2, and 4 hours.)

If the record timer is set to active, the size of the recorded file is
not shown on the recording screen, rather "Rec. Timer: [time]" is shown
to indicate that the recording timer is active and the currently
selected recording timer interval.
