Note that Mark said "newly created".  Chmod'ing the top-level
directory doesn't fix up any preexisting directories; you'll have
to do that yourself.  See the "find" and "xargs" commands.

Are you sure you're in the right group?  If you just added
yourself (whether by "usermod", editing /etc/group, etc.), it
doesn't affect your current sessions.  You have to log out and in
again for the change to take effect.  See the "id" command (with
"-a" if your system needs it).

It must be said that they would have sounded better if the singer
wouldn't throw his fellow band members to the ground and toss the
drum kit around during songs.
