I would like to try and speed up the launching of OS X. It seems to take quite a bit of time to get started. When I first got my Mac, the startup times were much quicker. However, now since I've added a whole bunch of startup applications, it takes much longer. I generally use all of my startup applications, but I do not need most of them when I first login. Would it be possible to delay the launching of certain applications to speed up my startup time? Are there any programs that do this? I imagine it would be possible to write a script to do this. Any help would appreciated.
