then in a separate window, run the client with the "-flush" option.  I 
would imagine some of the various Windows dialin programs will let you 
launch an arbitrary program when the connection comes up.  (At least, I'd 

On my Linux box at home, I have it buffer 200:200, and then asynchonously,
I dial in a couple times a day and do an ./rc564 -flush.  Works pretty well.
On top of that, I have a cron job which runs twice a day to dial in and
flush, so in the worst case I get about 122-123 blocks queued up.  Not bad,
IMHO.  I see no reason which this shouldn't work in Windows as long as you
can write dialscripts.
