Aaah, it seems the server has absorbed the greater character.


command > filename	redirects the stdout to a file, so any output from the command will be redirected to the file
2 > &1           	redirects stderr to stdout, which in my case is redirected to file hubbabubba.txt

the traling &          		puts the command in the background


Please excuse my multiple postings.
