comment Knowing Privilege rights on a file in Linux
But just because a file has 'r' permissions for a user doesn't mean they can read it - they also need to r+x on a directory it is in. The rute (linux.2038bug.com/rute-home.html) is an excellent, free, online introduction to Unix (inlcuding file permissions)

See also 'man cut' to view only specific columns, e.g. cut -d',' -f1,4-6 would return only columns 1,4,5 and 6

comment How to tell when a computer is idle?
You'd need to be a lot more specific about what you mean. What if they started a setsid progam before logging out - would you consider their session still active? What can you not get from the bash history?

comment How can I run a process in a terminal window and then hide that window?
agreed writing a daemon would be a better approach, but 'echo /usr/bin/python ~/program/proxy.py | at now' is a quick fix.

The posix nohup does not call setsid() (some implementations do) you've only isolated the signal, it's still in the same process group
