I mean that on the machine I'm working on the hostname is pye-dev-01 and 
the domain name is telemetry.co.uk. I was under the impression that 
GetDomainName() should return the latter, but apart from anything else 
it's unix-only and whilst Windows is not somewhere I want to go today 
I'd like a portable solution if possible.
