Question CGI script or Javascript ?


I have the following problem at my day job :-) :

I want to read the content of a local windows
NT4 Environment variable: USERNAME.
This should be done from Internet Explorer. Then this data should be sent to a CGI script that runs on a Unix/Apache server for further processing.

I guess it is not possible to do this with CGI script but it should be possible to do this via javascript as it runs on your local computer.

Any idea ? Thanks.
