    Question cannot get wget output to file

    Hi All I am using wget in spider mode to figure out what sites exist with certain names.

    Code:
    wget --spider --tries=1 www.4chan.org >> log
    as an example. That will run in the terminal and give screen output, but will not put anything in the log file.
    Ive tried piping to tee and that was a fail too.
    Can someone help me get the wget --spider output to go to a file?
    I am in 12.04

    specify a logfile with -o switch .

    Code:
    wget --spider --tries=1 www.4chan.org -o log.txt

    or with -a to append to the logfile

    The messages are normally reported to standard error.
