I'm having all relevant data (projects, personal, other) in one file and
use the archive function to clean up the main file. Some very big files
are linked to my main file.

changed the way I use emacs, thanks Carsten!

And of course being able to link everything (including emails, pdfs,
tex-files) into one file results in a nice workflow.
