By the looks of it the while loop with never exit unless the wget fails,
therefore the rc script calling the script will never exit.
If this is intended have a look at calling the the script via the daemon
command as that will handle back grounding it.

its quicker to invoke with the following, then you dont have to edit the

sh -x <script>
