Topic: Python Script as Background Process on Startup

I have a python script I am trying to run as a background process on startup (power-up).

  The python script serves as a datalogger that continuously runs and does some datalogging to a google spreadsheet. 

  I know that the python script does work in the background when I log on to my Chumby One through an ssh session, execute the following code and then log off (it continues to run after I log off):

/mnt/storage/ > /dev/null 2>&1 </dev/null &

  I have tried to get this to work at start-up by using the same line of code and adding it to /psp/rfs1/userhook0  , but I does not work.  I have gotten other python scripts to run in userhook0 on start-up, bbut I was not trying to get them to run as a background (persistent) process.

  Below is my userhook0 script:

/mnt/storage/ > /dev/null 2>&1 </dev/null &

  Does anyone have any ideas of why this does not seem to be working?  Any ideas or recommendations of what else to try would be appreciated.  Thanks.
