in reply to Comparing two dates and getting back difference in days

Throwing in one more thing to consider when comparing dates...

I use date::business because I typically need to figure out how many "business days" have passed and this module does a good job of not only figuring the weekdays, but also allows you to skip holidays.

using the diffb() function in this module will count the number of days between a Friday and a Monday as 1.

[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.
