I see a lot of talk about a wallet.dat file.  I can't find it on my Mac. 

Someone want to clue me in?

Worth pointing out too, AFAIK the wallet is backed up with Time Machine (with default settings). You might want to double check yourself, but if you're running Time Machine that might be the easiest way to ensure that your wallet is always backed up.

Time Machine backups are also unencrypted.  So where that drive sits, so do your Bitcoins.

One suggestion is turn on FileVault in snow leopard. It encrypts automatically the folder where your wallet.dat is stored. Just one more level of security you don't have to even think about.
