could anyone tell me what the advantage is of requesting your stock certificates after you have accumulated a nice round number (say 100).

I can't think of any advantage, except that you get to have the opportunity to lost the certificate (yup, I've been there, and although I did get it replaced, it was a bit of a hassle). I also don't know of anything magical that happens when the century mark is hit. There was a time when "round lots" were necessary, but those days are long gone.
