Oh, I always use that, (even now) my prompt is miles long. Didn't help me at all, I still messed up constantly; my brain ignores what my eyes clearly see. I need more than a clear sign post telling me where I am, I need a hammer that hits me whenever I do something wrong in the terminal :-).

If one can handle a multi-clone environment then parts of my tools are not needed.
