A program cannot restart itself after it is closed down.  I suggest a 
parent program that runs the one that you want to have running. Then, 
when the child program ends, the parent can restart it.

Caveat:  Make sure that there is a way to end it.  You do not want it to 
turn into a "never-ending story."
