Well, lets see...first, when you started hardcrack &, there should have
been a message that assigned a number to the process. You can use this
number to bring that process back into the forground  with 'fg #' where #
is the number you recieved when you started it.

I'm not totally sure that it will be at all useful, but top will show you
such a background process.

Hope this helps,
