You are super talented. I could not do [our site migration] without you. That is a fact.
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.
