comment linux: refreshing groups without having to re-login
fyi. the answer marked correct is wrong... and it's still technically a relogin. I added a correct answer... I find that the answer given to this question is usually wrong. it is a common fallacy.

comment linux: refreshing groups without having to re-login
this answer is incorrect especially since su is re-logging in. use newgrp in an open shell session to add groups to that session, that you've been added to.

comment Can you hibernate/reboot in Linux instead of hibernate/poweroff?
I would think the answer is, probably, yes, but I don't know how. You'll probably you'll probably have to investigate all the steps that make hibernate in the first place and write a script to do it. Because I think this is all basically scripted in the first place.

not being familiar with -m owner you could probably just remove -p tcp --dport 80,443 and prevent ALL tcp/ip access
