How to lock the components onto a bike?

Hi, I live in Maryland and since I've moved here I've had two bikes stolen and the wheels stolen off one other. Now I have built a nice hybrid from used LX/XT/SRAM parts and I'm wondering if there are tricks to keeping components from getting stolen, since I'd like to be able to leave this thing at the train station with just U-lock and cable. I have already touched up the frame with off-color nail polish to make it as ugly as possible.

Anybody have any experience with using adhesives to lock down derailleurs, stem, and saddle bolts? Also, I saw these really cool wheel skewers with some kind of really odd non-standard head that would be impossible to get a grip on without the right tool, but I don't know where they come form. Any pointers?
