in reply to I visit PM primarily to...

This should have been a multiple choice poll (able to vote on more than one option). Those that best describe my motivations, in rough order are
  1. Help Others
  2. Socialize
  3. Get inspired
  4. Pretend like I'm working

    "Primarily" implies a single choice. And just because you vote on one option doesn't mean that the others are not reasons you visit PM.

[oiskuu]: ... getlogin refers to tty owner; if you close STDIN, then getlogin returns undef. I get undef in my shell (running under X)
[tye]: Then there is a more persistent big of data similar to getlogin(). I don't believe even daemonizing drops it. So you can tell services that were started at boot time from those started by a person.
[tye]: I'll have to look into that later. getlogin() suites my current needs.
