There is no mention of OS X's network locations... How is this related to OS X at all?

There is also no mention of Location X, which is a location manager for OS X. It lets you switch timezones, networks, as well as many other preferences and is essential to pretty much any traveler that travels regularly.

    First of all, thank you very much for your feedback!

    As you can see in part two of this series (now published), this article is intended for travelers who are going through unknown places and/or countries.

    Although network locations can be used to create a general "AirPort (DHCP)", "Ethernet (DHCP)", ... -type setup, they don't really apply in the case of our "traveler" -- since setting up a location requires that you know the network in advance.

    I hope this answers your question and thank you again for your feedback!
