    Might help if you told us what system this is on. If it's a Linux box you
    could use:
    $user=`id -un`;
    or on most Unix boxes:
    $user=`whoami`;

    Yes, it's Linux box, and $GLOBALS['USER'] does good enough
    if one calls the script from command line. But I wonder, if
    the script will be fired up from cron, will this variable
    store the proper value. Username stored in field "name" in
    the crontab. Cron runs under another user
