in thread perl's sleep function

What is all the ill-natured yelling about? Maybe you need to ease up on the caffeine. I think that our new friend jesuashok deserves patient encouragement rather than abuse. If you can't reply in a reasonable way, please don't reply at all.

    Well, if you ask my opinion, you're overestimating the ill-nature-yellingness of my post. OTOH judging from the way it was downvoted it may be that I'm underestimating it instead. This may well have to be with the fact that I'm not a native English speaker, and my English is far from being perfect. Whatever, the fact that the XP of my reply is going up and down and is currently zero may suggest that approximately 50% of the people reading it agree with me.

    Indeed I cannot negate that I wanted to be slightly harsh in jesuashok's respects, since I consider this to be a valid educational aid - that is: I did not only yell at him, but also gave actual pieces of information pointing him to the relevant portions of the documentation. But in no way did I want to be disrespectful to him by being overly harsh, and if I conveyed that impression I apologize to him directly.

[tye]: probably something in the init subsystem that does the mounting that you could disable and reboot.
davido needs to close laptop to board flight home from yapc.
[davido]: I'll look into it in a few hours probably.
[davido]: when i do get to that point I think I'll do it in a vm snapshot just in case. :)
[oiskuu]: tye, you were right: loginuid/sessionid are part of task struct if compiled with AUDITSYSCALL. I have some doubts if you should actually depend on that feature.
[Corion]: oiskuu: Depends on what you want to do with that information
[tye]: I'm not depending on that feature. But I could in this environment. I'm using getlogin(). shrug
[Corion]: For benign logging (which user started this DB instance), it's OK
[tye]: We use auditd for security monitoring. So we can rely on auditing being enabled. I'm not sure who would want to not be able to audit. Maybe some VM inside another system with audit?
[SuicideJunkie]: spies would want a system to not be able to audit.
