It's very easy.  Ask them.  Otherwise, there is absolutely no uambiguous way to tell.  There are ways to snoop and find a person's IP address, but that can lead to many false positives and mistaken identities because it could point to anyone on the wireless router in your Starbucks or residence hall (or your sister, using your computer when you aren't home).  Technically, that sort of snooping isn't a TOS violation UNLESS you share the information, which is how one notorious recent snooper got banned from SL permanently.
