Emacs Tip: Launching RDP
This emacs-lisp snippet launches the terminal services client to connect to a particular host
(w32-shell-execute "Open" (concat (getenv "SystemRoot") "/system32/mstsc.exe") "/v:10.1.1.1" )
Just hit ctrl-e after the final paren and you have cross-application hyperlinking. I keep an EmacsWiki file for each client which I use mostly as a journal/engineering notebook, and at the top I keep server connect parameters like the above (and vmware instance usr/pwds etc). Handy.
