I used to use AirportLocation.app to automatically change the
designated Time Machine drive based on network. So when at work it
would backup to a drive there, when at home it would back up to a
drive at home. Airportlocation.app will not work with LION
however. Can MarcoPolo be used for this purpose on LION? If so -
How? Thanks

If your familiar with command line check out the man page for tmutil

here is a walk through that explains how to use the tmutil command and
set marcopolo to switch the time machine destinations:
