    <li>Create a new connection to http://localhost:9000.     </li>
<p>  <li>Double click on the connection to connect to the server.     </li>
Will Sargent &lt;<a href="mailto:will_sargent@yahoo.com">will_sargent@yahoo.com</a>&gt;  <li>When the server asks you if you would like to be registered for the
<?php require(NOTES); ?>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

 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
 above instructions, please e-mail me at the address below.</p>
