This should be configurable.  I was pictureing this in a lightly connected system, rather than DoD.  The scenerio that I envision the computer is used for mostly local work with occasional internet logon for email retrieval or web surfing.  With my suggestion the client would use these times, when the system is already logged on, to refill its buffer so that it can keep crunching through the next logged off period.

For Dial On Demand, you would probably want to just reload at fifty blocks.
