There's got to be a simple solution, but so far it has evaded me.
Is there a way to arrange the order of starting-up the items in the startup folder? Or even delaying one or two items to start up a few seconds after another one?
I have a few items that depend on other items in the folder in order to work right. For instance, I have my DSL "dialer" (MacPOEt) which starts up automatically and connects me to the internet. But it takes 2 - 3 seconds to do so.
But I also have Netscape and Outlook Express startup automatically. However, half the time, the internet connection has not yet been established, and both give me error messages. I have to click them away and sometimes restart the program in order to get the internet connection.
Hardly fatal -- but annoying.
If anyone has found a way around this little issue, I'd appreciate it. Thanks!
