Thanks everyone for your help. I was unable to figure out 'screen', it 
just left the terminal in a frozen-like state. I haven't tried ttysnoop yet.
Peter Barker's suggestion works well for what I had in mind. Thanks 
Peter. I'm still not quite sure what the 'sudo' command does though.

Anyways, thanks all.
