I tend to overlook details. At university I regularly ask people next to 
me which computer I'm sitting at, when my prompt is  user at host:/dir/  
When I'm doing an LFS install late in the evening, a prompt is certainly 
not enough to keep me from making mistakes. Not working as root is 
definitely the safest way to go.
