[Wolves] Top (Ubuntu) Tip - Re-theme your "sudo" applications

Hi all,

Spotted this in my RSS reader and thought I'd share it with the LUG:

"Ubuntu desktop users: If you're constantly creating "sudo" sessions in 
Nautilus (or other applications), it's very easy to confuse your sudo 
windows with your regular windows. This often results in accidentally 
opening read-only versions of your system files -- very frustrating! A 
quick way to visually separate your simultaneous sessions, is to assign 
a different theme to your sudo applications."


Obviously the purists and CLI addicts will slap my wrists for running 
GUI apps as root, but hopefully someone might find it useful.
