[Event Notifications] saves the day again...

Got the morning ERRORLOG email courtesy of EN.  And I got several hundred messages from ERRORLOG.  During a patch, the Agent XPs were disabled but not reenabled.  So the Agent service was up, but didn't do anything.

Ironically enough, it wasn't just the ERRORLOGs that saved me - it was SQL Sentry, which hit (and failed) the XPs once a minute.  Which, yay, caused an ERRORLOG message, but didn't actually TELL me it wasn't working.  (I've submitted a bug fix for that).

Just another of those "my god, how do I live without this" posts.

ALL my EN code is in this share:

Additionally, my Gists (source code of the code I use in production) are at:
