Mark and Jill exceeded my expectations. I'm fairly new to Drupal and the project I'm working on for my largest customer needed some theme help, code modification, and data entry. Mark and Jill took care of it in short order.
So when the concept of "login items" appeared in Apple's System Preferences a few years back, I used to use those. Recently, especially since I started telecommuting a couple days per week, I discovered that I really needed different login items (applications) to start up depending on which day of the week it was. For instance, on my telecommute days, I need a VPN application to start up first.
