First things Pierson... I was sorely tempted to delete the message
because of the childish all caps subject line, but I decided to be kind
and answer your question. In the future please be more thoughtful when
deciding upon a subject.

Answer to question:

You need to use nohup. Check man nohup for help.

Alex: Could we add this to the FAQ? I'm willing to write up a paragraph
or so on how to use nohup if you're willing to add it to the FAQ. It just
seems like it falls under the descriptive of "frequent".
