in thread How to abate the Ubiquitous Fear of Programming

I just took these various aptitude tests (from rockport institute), and one of the fields they tested was the Spatial/Non-Spatial continuum. The idea is that some of us are more spatial than others, and some of us are better at non-spatial stuff than others. I think my super spatialness is actually a hindrance to my programming - I get bored easily cause there isn't a whole lot that I need to visualize in order to do my job. I suppose I should be programming things that require mad spatial skills. My point here is that yes, some people are naturally spatial and some people aren't so much. And there are benefits either way. Oh yes - one more thing - I don't think a person is an awful artist if they make a great painting.

[davido]: I am not finding closing STDIN to be an adequate means of making getlogin return undef.
[Corion]: Maybe doing a double-fork (daemonizing) can make go that information away, but maybe not
[Corion]: But I think my knowledge of unix/Linux datastructures is several decades out of date, so I don't really know what information it keeps on processes
[oiskuu]: The useful bits that relate to your process can be found under /proc/self. What information are you thinking of? Tty name?
[tye]: I just daemonized and getlogin() still knew who I had been.
[tye]: perhaps loginuid ? Not that I concede that something not being in /proc means it is not useful.
