Emacs Org-mode is very powerful tool for scientific research. You can manage your script, figures and text all in one place. One problem I have encountered though, is that when I access an .org file with a link to an image hosted on a remote machine, I cannot display that image inline. Here I posted a solution how you may do it.
As time goes, my .emacs file grows so large that I find it difficult to organise, to switch things on/off and document the references where I found solutions for certain tasks. I decided to use Org to organise my .emacs file so that I can have emacs-lisp code and descriptions all in one file with sections.
