Launch login items via AppleScript to avoid login delays
Authored by: tedw on Nov 18, '09 01:40:59PM
refining it a bit more:
set theAppList to {{name:"Things", vis:false}, {name:"Mail", vis:true}}
set theDelay to 1

repeat with currentApp in theAppList
	tell application (name of currentApp) to launch
	delay theDelay
	tell application "System Events"
			if background only of process (name of currentApp) is false then
				set visible of process (name of currentApp) to (vis of currentApp)
			end if
		end try
	end tell
end repeat
