For years I've been a big fan of Kiwi's tools. Their syslog server and router config tools are quick, powerful, and super geeky - right up my alley. Well, as of now, I can use them for free which is sort of like getting a second Christmas except the presents are way cooler... You can read the full story here.
If you're not familar with these tools I highly suggest that you download them and try them out. There are free versions and licensed versions (you can download a free eval for the licensed versions) of both of the tools available and a description of the differences.
Long story short, if you need a cool syslog server or if you're doing router, switch, and firewall config backups by hand - Kiwi tools are the tools for you...
