    Specs:
    MacBookPro early 2012running Mavericks,MacMini Core i7 running Mavericks: iPhone 4s, iPad 3rd Gen
    Delay app startup
    Running Mavericks on MacMini, I keep all "cloud" related folders on my external firewire drive. Sometimes when starting the Mac, it cannot find dropbox or googledrive folders.
    I assume it is because the drive has not yet mounted. Is there any way of delaying the start of any program for a few seconds at boot time.
