I have a bunch of notes stored in plain text files about various topics I'm interested in. I organize them in a hierarchy of directories and use Windows shortcuts when a file could fit in more than one place. For example I have a file called
django.txt which contains notes about the Django web framework. I keep the file in
/notes/python/django.txt, but I have a shortcut in
/notes/servers because it fits there too.
I just switched to OS X and all my shortcuts are broken, because Mac uses aliases instead. Is there anyway I could get cross OS shortcuts to work? Of course, I could just make both Mac alias and Windows shortcut files, but ideally I'd like to avoid cluttering things up too much. Maybe I could use some note-taking program instead, but I like the simplicity and versatility of my plain text files. Any suggestions?
