What is a simple way to stream / webcast and capture / record several hours of video at the same time?

My friend wants to watch the output of webcam live, as well as to record about 3.5 hours per day of video from the same video. Ideally with audio.
- She want to be able, at work, be able to see her apartment via her laptop's webcam. I assume she can do this via Stickam/ustream or a similar service?
- She wants the recording to be saved, so that she can watch it later if necessary. This will be up to 3.5 hours at a time and I assume will be the harder part of the problem, in terms of getting a balance between file size, processor load and image quality.
Software? Web services? General advice and principals?
This is not covert recording. Her PC is a low-end ThinkPad running Vista from last year.
