Looking for a particular admin UI example

Looking for good examples of website/cms administration UI. I know what I want, but I can't find it again.

I have seen this somewhere but I don't know where - when you are logged into the site, there is a colored bar across the top of the site (which doesn't interfere with navigation) and that gives you access to the administrative functions of the site - however, you still browse the site as a regular user.

Anyone have any ideas of where I could have seen this? It's driving me batty, and I need it for a proof of concept.

I've seen this in DotNetNuke.

Also, if that's not it, check out Open Source CMS for a memory jog. They have a huge collection of live CMSes that you can log into as admin for a free test drive. If you're scanning the list and see a name that rings a bell, you can hop right in and see if that's what you're remembering.

Drupal's module for this is called Admin Menu and looks like this.
