 iChat Knows Where I Am

"Anyway, I realized that my PowerBook knows where it is, because it sees the AirPort Base Stations that are around me. At home, it locks onto my home AirPort network, and at work, it locks on to the work network. So I decided to write an AppleScript that remembered to set my status on iChat AV, even when I forgot. It finds out what Base Station my PowerBook is attached to, and based on that, it sets my iChat AV status."
