in thread I prefer this kind of clock or watch:

The problem is, just buying your own atomic clock won't make you know the exact time. Have you ever wondered why Coordinated Universal time is called Coordinated? Well, I don't know. It could either be because it's generated by multiple atomic clocks around the word that are synchronized together. Or it could be because it's syncronized by leap seconds to the cosmologic time defined by two trees of Valinor (the relevation of the Sun around the Earth since the reforms).

[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.
