    Determining Logged On Users

    Hey, a quick question (these things are never quick, are they?). Does anyone know how to determine what users are logged on? For example, say I had User 1 and User 2. User 2 was logged but inactive, and I was on User 1. How would I determine that User 1 was currently being used? I don't know if that's possible, but any help would be appreciated.

    All problems in computer science can be solved by another level of indirection,
    except for the problem of too many layers of indirection.

    Thanks vart and CodePlug, that works perfectly!

    BTW, if you guys remember, what exactly did you search for? Maybe I don't know what to search for, but I tried and couldn't find anything.
