putting aria2c in background

Hello everyone,

I want to put an aria2c session in background. My session output as followos -

[----- ~]$ aria2c -c -i list.txt -j4 --load-cookies=rapidshare &
[1] 3653
[----- ~]$
2009-11-19 00:54:16.614130 WARN - You may encounter the certificate verification error with HTTPS server. See --ca-certificate and --check-certificate option.
*** Download Progress Summary as of Thu Nov 19 00:55:17 2009 ***
==================================================================================================== =========================
[#1 SIZE:64.5MiB/101.3MiB(63%) CN:5 SPD:101.79KiB/s ETA:06m09s]
FILE: ./100_Words_to_Make_You_Sound_Smart_Audio_Ebook_112_kbps-ez_fx.rar

Now, please give me a solution how i will get my console back and I will get the "Download Progress Summary" to a file, which I can view using tail as download progresses.
