Run Firefox on both lexington and excalibur. Assuming that no one has changed them, the various run, monitor, summary, and log pages come up by default. If they don't, go to the Bookmarks menu, right-click on the folders with likely names like "Run Assistance", and select "Open all in tabs".

You are required (seriously) to join a Google hangout while you're on shift. One of the browser tabs in Firefox should be open to http://plus.google.com, but it may be you'll have to login to the MicroBooNE shift account:
  Account name: ubooneshift
Password: the DocDB password typed twice, no spaces
Line: 115 to 109
  On your laptop, you can instead login to your own Google account, and add ubooneshift as a friend.

You are also required to start Skype and connect to the on-site shifter. Start Skype on excalibur (which has a camera and mic). You should automatically be logged into the nevis.ubooneshift account (password same as the Google hangout account above). You can click on ubooneshift to call them, or wait for them to call you after you speak with them on the phone.

You can run Skype on your laptop instead. Send a contact request to ubooneshift.
