    Better hurry up and patch if you don't trust yourself enough - lol.

    Basically anyone who has physical access probably already has root password anyway.

    Now if this was remote it would be big news.

    I have two different account on my machine for myself, 'cause I can't spell my name right. Does that count as more than one user?
