Need recording lecture audio solution

Currently I'm recording lectures on to a computer using Audacity. Sometimes the lectures can be over an hour, and I'm worried recording with Audacity on Windows is not the best solution.

What happens if Audacity freezes, well then none of that audio is saved like it would be on a tape.

Is there a digital solution to recording that can be used instead of a line in on a computer mic port, that will constantly save what's being recorded, and that I could upload to the web as mp3 more easily?

Do you know if that device constantly saves while recording, like a tape recorder does? Or if it gets turned off do you lose whatever it was you're recording?

It's also a bit pricey, but I see it's on Newegg for $200

With a small camcorder you just leave it very close to the speaker -- like on a desk or lectern, that's how I used to record interviews. Works extremely well.
