Hi everyone,

I'm using orgmode in a multi OS environment. (OS X, Linux & Windows)
Most of the time I carry a USB-drive or stick.
I try to keep all linked files inside the same directory structure
used on all OS's.

Does anyone have a solution to keep links in Orgmode files intact
between OS's?
I realize the mount point is crucial in this respect. 
But on Windows systems, the drive letter can change quite at random...

Or could windows shellinks
(http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/bb776891%28v=vs.85%29.aspx)
or IUniformResourceLocator (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/229092)
provide a solution? (I have not investigated this yet)

Thanks!

Erwin

Maybe running a portable app webserver might be a solution?
Could this serve up "a uniform" file location for linking from within orgmode?

Just a thought.
