comment Redirect outbound traffic on LAN going to port 443 to port 80 or 8080 instead
Some websites either do not allow http connections or will redirect http connections to https immediately. Putting in an https to http redirect at the outgoing border of your LAN might cause problems for your network because of this.

comment How do I kill a process after detaching it from bash?
With nohup, closing the terminal should not kill the process, it should simply transfer the process's PPID to init. nohup is exactly what you should use to prevent that. Alternately, if you want to reconnect to it later, wrap it in a screen session.

comment How do I program Python so that it outputs to all terminals in Linux
You shouldn't have to configure syslog, no, but there's no guarantee that syslog will have a default configuration or a sufficient configuration for this.
