The OS will take care of this by firing up another instance of 
your script. All you need to do is be aware of the possibility of 
multiple instances doing ?things? at around the same time and make sure 
that you don't have say several instances all writing to the same file at 
the same time - use locking where it is not provided by the tool you are
