Force group membership reload?
I just added myself to a group by editing /etc/group and adding my username but when I do "id" the group doesn't show up yet...

Is there a way to force a reload without logging off and back on again since I have lots of things in progress that I'd lose if I log off?

man newgrp
Be aware that this is only for the current shell. The only
permanent (and global) fix is to log out and back in.
