Automatically assigning author's name in templates

SOLIDWORKS has a property called "SW-Created Date" but they fail to expose a property that could be called "SW-Created By."  That would be so easy for them to do!  Does anyone have a method of doing this until SLDWORKS decides to provide one?

 

I want the user to be able to start a new part, and then the Author name is automatically filled in.  Also it would be nice to be able to manipulate "dzinn" to "D. ZINN" or whatever.

 

Unfortunately the company is currently using 2008.
