Arg sh*t!!!!!

Remember to add the -a parameter! Otherwise you get removed from all
other groups not specified.
   $ usermod -a -G firebird sparky

Anybody how I can restore my 'graemeg' user on the Ubuntu Linux server
to be part of the 'sudoers' list again.  I can execute anything via
'sudo' and by default the 'root' account is disable in Ubuntu.  Maybe
rebooting into single user mode would give me root access. Dammit!!!
