    why dont you write a script:

    Code:
    arecord
    This program will record from your soundcard

    Code:
    lame
    If you want, you could pipe the output from arecord into lame and get an mp3 as output (google arecord pipe lame)

    Code:
    sleep
    Makes the script wait a specified time before executing the next command.

    Alternativly, if you want to say record every day at 3pm, maybe look into cron?

    Good luck.
