Sure there is. There's a "lurk" option ("lurk=1" in the .ini file) which
is supposed to do just that, at least in the non-GUI win32 version of the
client. I use it with threshold settings of 200:1. After each block is
completed, it'll dump whatever it has if there's a modem connection;
otherwise it'll just press on.
