Set Time Zone Automatically in Snow Leopard

Frequent travelers may be interested to know that in Snow Leopard your time zone can now be set automatically by bringing up the Date & Time preference pane, clicking the Time Zone view, and selecting Set Time Zone Automatically. A progress spinner appears while Snow Leopard sends off information about the Wi-Fi signals in your vicinity and receives location data back.

In TidBITS #213 you mentioned how PowerTalk could delete email when a gateway service is removed. This just happened to me but I was able to recover by restoring from a backup three files in the PowerTalk Data folder:

System Folder:PowerTalk Data:WSBTree
System Folder:PowerTalk Data:IPM Bin:QMgrCatalog
System Folder:PowerTalk Data:IPM Bin:QMgrPrefs

And since we all back up obsessively, this is a great solution, right?
