Are you a sys admin that uses emacs?
What tools/plugins do you find essential? In my organization the programmers tend to use emacs whereas the sys admins gravitate towards vim. Since we have 4:1 programmers:sys admins, the global emacs config has a lot more goodness but it doesn't fit nicely into my workflow since I'm used to starting/stopping vim on remote hosts 1000 times a day
Does emacs have a place in your sys admin workflow?
EDIT: and if so, how do you use it? What's an example workflow? There are many, many articles out there on how programmers use emacs, but I have neither met a sys admin who uses emacs nor read an article by a sys admin who uses emacs, so please speak up!
