Gotta read the order confirmation email a little closer next 
time. It's all in there.

Yup, AIUI mp3 was designed for voice anyway, that's why music needs to
be cranked up to ridiculous bitrates to not sound shitty when
you're using mp3 instead of a proper general-purpose audio codec like
vorbis or aac.

 Both Vorbis and MP3 can be set as VBR (Variable Bit Rate), 
however I would think that's post processing; If possible I would 
think you get as high of quality as you can reasonably get, then 
downgrade it afterwards. If you got 50Gb of space for audio, why 
not record at 320kbits?

 Thank heavens for MPEG-4 (and AVC/h.264), otherwise video would 
still be difficult to transmit over the internet at decent speeds.

 If I attend and that's very likely (unless something huge 
happens... like my death...) then I would bring an external drive 
or two, meaning drive space during the recording and time there 
wouldn't be an issue; Although having a backup in case one of the 
drives fails seems important at that point (losing the only copy 
would be quite annoying to everyone).
