    Your favourite (IT-related) tool?

    The rules, before we begin:
    1) You only get to choose one
    2) It can be anything you could conceivably use in the practise of IT, be it a software tool or a hardware one.
    3) It should be specific (Leatherman Skeletool is good, "Open Source Software" is too broad.).
    4) While there may be niche uses for hippos, black cockerels and candlesticks while performing the black arts at stupid o'clock, pick something else
    5) You don't talk about Robot Club

    My choice is OpenSSH for fixing remote kit wherever I am.

    My IDC insertion and crimping tool.

    Inserts.
    Crimps.
    Picks those nasty bits of black crud out from underneath your nails.
    Has a hook thing that's really rather good at rescuing pieces of anything kids have inserted into computers.
