CurrentUser name is derived, if you want to change it then just assign a user name to a variable.

what are you trying to achieve?

How are you going to determine when a user goes to another computer?

And what's the ultimate goal of this endeavor? Are you trying to allow a user to pick up where they left off on MachineA from MachineB? Or is there some other goal?
