Okay, lets take this example:
I have a script that executes all the necessary code to update my
"myownlog.log". By making this the first step in the script that would run
every 5 minutes, I should avoid having this file be open or locked before
running the next step. I'll handle all of the (if thens) and open/closes).
Then and only then, go on to making the graph.

The next step in that script would be ...... what?
I'm hearing use the external program call function. What is this?
Does rateup change the log file?

Sorry for all the confusion, but as Paul mentioned, I don't want to put my
server in a poor state.
