Type "w" and hit return. You will get something that looks like this:

dlord pts/8 11Feb02 9days -csh
From that, you can see on this machine that dlord, for example, logged
in on pts/20 on Feb 11, 2002 and has been idle on that tty for 8 days.
You can also see what command they're running from that tty.
Hope that's helpful.
PS- Pay no attention to the episode of the Simpsons playing on this
