You need to check who the process owner is.
That can be done on *Nix by reading the USER environment
variable. Cron jobs are usually run under the 'cron' user
Hoever that won;t work if the python script is executed
in a shell script that is then executed by a user. Its usually
better to make verbosity controllable by a flag
- traditionally -v. Thus the default is non verbode and
verbosity can be switched on(or even given any one of
several levels) as desired.
