comment How do I find (and kill) process running on a certain port?
I'd recommend against the kill -9. It doesn't allow cleanup, and some internet app is more likely to have resources that need to be shut down cleanly.

comment Can I lock a user to one site only in Chrome?
What OS? I don't think browsers can lock you down this hard, you may need to play with firewalls and such.

comment Can I lock a user to one site only in Chrome?
I think this is more 'shutting down certain UI elements to keep you in the browser' than limit to a specific site, though you do want to keep the user tied to one chrome instance if you want to not open up IE or Safari or whatever.

For some reason, the curmudgeon in me felt the need to add The Story of Mel. I do agree with OP though, I have multiple monitors at work, and work at home with a single monitor is an adjustment

comment How to remove all privileges from a particular user
I think you're forgetting 'other'. Yes, they won't be the user, or group, but other is everyone else. They'd get those 'other' perms. Anything with other-write would be writable, anything with other-executable would be runnable.

@Mike Keller - better would be /bin/rbash. You'd need to be root and either make a hard link or symlink from bash => rbash. Then set up their environment to be VERY restrictive.

Unfortuntately even this can't stop everything. You'd have to change every executable to not have execute for 'other' and change every file and every non-temp dir to not have write for 'other'. That may cause bigger problems.

comment Does Windows still rely on MS-DOS?
I remember this, the whole VxD interface and VMM switcher. It was an interesting way to move forward somewhat on an OS and still have a lot of backwards compatibility.

comment Passing two arguments to a command using pipes
also, as far as your Update text, the output does come from cat, just you want the statements seemed as separate to cat, which it can not do since they are serialized into one stream.

comment Passing two arguments to a command using pipes
@firebat no, pipe means to take the stdout of the previous command as standard input of the next command. You can still have arguments, which are a different concept.
