i have multiple physical locations where i use my employer-provided workstation, and in two of them i have multiple workstations at my desk. due to the nature of my work having separate computers is best practice. i cannot use Universal Access or anything else because i use a separate AppleID/iCloud account for use on my employer-provided and managed equipment. that apple ID is part of my family group so i have access to my software.

so i have that configuration file specified for when i'm in IOW and it specifies three computers across five displays starting with my employer-provided workstation far left in each space. i plug in to a thunderbolt dock and moonlander keyboard and then the magic happens.

i'll have conditional context for each location later most important was just to keep synergys from crashing constantly and having to restart it. i have no idea why it constantly fails, i thought it was clipboard related but even with clipboard sharing disabled it just quietly dies so in absence of troubleshooting details to figure it out, i'll just make it launch synergys again every time it fails. i'm catching errors for review later.

this plist was created in Lingon X which i am pleased to report is still a maintained product and worth the money!
