in reply to poll ideas quest 2007

I expect CERN's LHC outcome to be
  • wasted energy
  • significant advance in physics
  • the Higgs Boson detected
  • Black Holes devouring earth
  • Nobel Prize for someone
  • Switzerland wasted
  • critics blamed
  • The Pandora Box
  • a hubris museum
  • nothing interesting
  • something else

Not funny, perhaps.

update: looks like a LHC poll was a good idea, but my proposed choices weren't. Ah well...

[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.
