Office Communicator 2007 R2 provides a full set of personal presence
attributes that you can customize and make available to other contacts
to help them communicate with you. As shown in this illustration,
presence attributes include your presence status, your location, and a
personal note.

    Is there any way for OC to know the name of the network the OS connected to? You know what would be very cool? If OC automatically changed my Current Location depending on whether I'm connected to a LAN (at the office) or a specific WiFi (at Home)
