Return the short username in AppleScript
Authored by: cyberelf on Mar 11, '03 08:03:42AM

This only works if you're using the default home directory.
However, if your home directory is something else (I prefer to use a directory named as my full name bicapitalized without spaces on a separate volume), this script won't work at all.
Using 'do shell script "whoami"' is much more reliable.
