The only way I can think of is to use location.hash
Before each piece of data come in, document.write an <a name="..."></a>
location.hash can then be called to jump to the specified name tag
(just like linking to http://.../your.document.html#name.of.tag)
If you want it to progressively scroll up or down, label the name tags as
ascending or descending numbers.
