<p>I have a server which is currently using a hacked up protocol based on FTP.<p>To get the server running on your machine, download the server.jar file
I have since learned why no-one uses a protocol from the 1970's if they can<a href="http://tersesystems.com/bookie/server.jar">here</a>.  You should

both simpler and more intelligent.in a directory for Bookie usage.   No database is required, as Bookie will
create its own database if it doesn't  find one.  It will start on port 9000

the cool <a href="http://www.xulplanet.com/tutorials/xulapp/">tutorial</a>. <code>jar xvf client.jar</code> and it will create a bookie-client directory

 <p>  </p>
     <li>Create a new connection to http://localhost:9000.     </li>
   <li>Double click on the connection to connect to the server.     </li>
   <li>When the server asks you if you would like to be registered for the
 server, say yes.     </li>
   <li>Click on the root folder, then click on the File menu and select the
 import menu item.       </li>
   <li>Import your bookmarks by going to your netscape bookmarks.html file
 and clicking on that.         As an example, my Mozilla file is under "C:\Documents
 and Settings\Will Sargent\Application Data\Mozilla\Profiles\default\mq632ho0.slt"

 <p>There is be a permanent bookmark server at <a

 to the server at tersesystems, please enter <code>http://tersesystems.com:9000/</code>
 as your URL.  <strong .="">Please do not use a normal password</strong>:
 most of Bookie's traffic is not  encrypted, and you may be vulnerable to
 packet sniffing.  Also note that there is no  expectation of privacy on this
 server.  Although I intend to keep all bookmark information private,  I reserve
 the right to look at any and all data on the server for debugging purposes.
 <p>Suggestions and comments are welcome.  If you have any problems with the
