One way to share links to networked files
Authored by: chleuasme on Mar 23, '09 01:02:33PM

For the manual creation of .fileloc file you described in A, you can simply drag the file or folder to the text box of the dialog for link creation (in TextEdit, Mail, ...) and add the prefix "file://". Another solution is to drag to a Finder window the content of the Firefox's adress bar after the drag of a file or folder. The Applescript I wrote above may be an easier solution, though ;-)
