Why not buffer 50 blocks, and set up a script to:

Do forever
 sleep for however long it takes to do 25 of them
 run a second session with the -update (or -fetch then -flush) option
 run a second session with the -update (or -fetch then -flush) option a
 second time just to make sure the buffers are really full

Lots for us OS/2ers are doing this with REXX, but you could also do it
with any scheduling program.
