$USER gives you the name of the current user.
However specialFolderPath() might provide the exact folder path you
need. As well as the docs, check out Ken Ray's list of usable codes
for this: <http://www.sonsothunder.com/devres/revolution/tips/file010.htm>
BTW, in OS X & Rev, you don't need to include the MacHD part in your
file path. /Users/username/Library.... is the way such folders are
