Seeing as this is already labeled as "geeky", let me add that it is nice 
to put your PID in the lockfile so that if a new instance of the program 
finds it, it can determine if the lockfile is stale by checking for the 
PID of the program that created it.

I nominate this as the geekiest thread on MUUG in recent memory.

Nicely done boys! Reminds me why i'm on this list.

Oh ya, and what Sean(s) said. Lockfile.
