I would recommend doing the following fix more than replacing or altering permissions on sudo.

From command prompt:

If you have BBEdit:
bbedit /etc/sudoers
Or if you use TextWrangler:
edit /etc/sudoers

If you have neither:
sudo visudo

Add the following line to the Defaults (after the last one)
(Which should be Defaults env_keep += "HOME MAIL")
Defaults timestamp_timeout=0

Save it and now sudo will always prompt for a password.

2.0 of this is out Macupdate. It's a paid upgrade not an update.
The server part is still free and has also been updated. (Except for the Linux server it's still the 1.x series and doesn't support a lot of the new things - hope that gets updated at some point.)

I should also mention it's a universal app (iPad supported unlike 1.0)

I also went and did the upgrade to 4.x series. Massive deal breaker for me: fan speeds. It doesn't apply the presets after I've put my macbook pro to sleep and then wake it up. So I go to apply it and the menu item freezes for a good 5 seconds before I can even get to the drop down selection (freezes when I just click on the menu). I've done a clean re-install and a reset of the SMC / PRAM to no avail. (Permissions are also correct and the caches have been cleaned). Reinstalled 3.x series and it works flawlessly. My wife's macbook (not pro) also has the exact same issue and I will probably downgrade her copy as well.

Think we could get a link to the JDK as well on Oracle's java site?
Of course the link changes but for link to at least reach the JDK can be found here:

Java Preferences in Utilities folder will actually pick up the JDK and allow you to set it as the default java (drag it to the top of the list).

Till Growl 2 comes out there is also Bark.

Bark actually displays the app's icons in notification center unlike mountain growl or hiss.

Of course it puts some weird bundle stuff on your machine to gain this ability (Growl 2 is supposed to do it a nicer way that Apple approves of.)
If you want to uninstall Bark the ability is actually inside of Growl on Bark's style configuration section.

Quick suggestion for the Author:
It would be nice if there was a progress bar for the rsync process, and any other lengthy process of this script.

Perhaps take a look at Platypus (
Maybe wrap that into the program for these processes?
