wget help

Hello all,
im using wget a range of files from my FTP server.
The command im using is

wget -nc -A R-*[100-419]*.txt ftp://testuser:test@*
That works, and it downloads files R100-R419 for text files only.

Now i want to log the output of the connection/transfer. So i add the -o

wget -o -nc -A R-*[100-419]*.txt ftp://testuser:test@*
Once i add that, it seems to break -nc. I dont want wget to download the file again if its up to date.

How can i have logging to file and also NC??

Any help would be great!

how about using redirection directly like this:

wget **** >> mylog.file
For other usage examples, you can refer this link for details.
