I couldn't stand moving from computer to computer and having to look upYou can read what Bookie is <a href="purpose.html">here</a>, but here's the
different bookmarks.  I wanted to be able to search my bookmarks and havelong and short of it:
bookmarks I never used moved out of my way.  I wanted to share my bookmarks
with someone.  And I wanted total integration with the browser, so I didn't<blockquote>
have to go through a web interface or a specific bookmarking program.Bookie is an application which keeps all your bookmarks on a
central server so that you can access bookmarks from anywhere on the web.
<p> Bookie is a project born of an itch to make collaborative bookmarking a</blockquote>
reality.  It was partly conceived out of <a
href="http://www.mozilla.org/blue-sky/ui/199805/bookmarks.html">good<p>
bookmarking</a> and <aThe server is written in Java, and uses XML-RPC to communicate to clients.
href="http://www.mozilla.org/blue-sky/misc/199805/collaborative-bookmark-index.html">collaborativeThere's also a client written in Swing, which is pretty functional.  The
bookmark indexing</a>.current goal is to get the Mozilla client back into shape given the existence 
of a working server (finally!)
<p>The server is written in Java which sends bookmark information over a</p>
protocol to the client.  The server is written and can get bookmarks and
folders to the client in RDF format.<p>
 To get the server running on your machine, download the server.jar file 
 <a href="http://tersesystems.com/bookie/server.jar">here</a>.  You should start
 the server with <code>-jar server.jar</code> 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 by default, but you can specify the port
 on the command line.  <a href="http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4/download.html">JDK 1.4</a> 
 with the <code>-server</code> option is recommended, as the I/O performance is
 MUCH faster than 1.3.1.
 </p>
 
 <p>
 To start the client, download the client file 
 <a href="http://tersesystems.com/bookie/client.jar">here</a>.  You do not need
 anything besides the <code>-jar</code> option, although again 1.4 has been found
 to be much faster.  When the client starts up, it will present you with a 
 connections box:
 </p>
 
 <p>
   <ul>
     <li>Create a new connection to http://localhost:9000.
     <li>Double click on the connection to connect to the server.
     <li>When the server asks you if you would like to be registered for the server, say yes.
     <li>Click on the root folder, then click on the File menu and select the import menu item.  
     <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"
     <li>Close down and restart the client (there is a bug that stops import from updating).
   </ul>    
 </p>
 
 <p>
 There is be a permanent bookmark server at tersesystems.com.  To connect to the server
 at tersesystems, please enter <code>http://tersesystems.com:9000/</code> as your URL.

 <p> An integration to Mozilla is halfway done.  There is also a debugging  
 client written in Swing.
