<?php require(NOTES); ?>    <li>Create a new connection to http://tersesystems.com: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"  (See <a href="http://www.mozillazine.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=9233&amp;start=0&amp;postdays=0&amp;postorder=asc&amp;highlight=">here</a> for how to get it to be somewhere more convenient).
       </li>
   <li>Or, if you are using Internet Explorer, you can import your bookmarks by going to "C:\Documents and Settings\Will Sargent\Favorites" and importing the favorites from there.</li>
   <li>You can also export to Netscape if you want to get bookmarks out of the server.</li>
   <li>That's it!</li>
 </ul>

    There is an example bookmark server at 
    <a href="http://tersesystems.com">http://tersesystems.com</a>.  To connect
    to the test server, 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.
