 You can read what Bookie is <a href="purpose.html">here</a>, but here's the  
 long and short of it:  
   
 <blockquote>  
 Bookie is an application which keeps all your bookmarks on a  
 central server so that you can access bookmarks from anywhere on the web.  
 </blockquote>  
   
 <p>  
 The server is written in Java, and uses XML-RPC to communicate to clients.  
 There's also a client written in Swing, which is pretty functional.  The  
 current goal is to get the Mozilla client back into shape given the existence   
 of a working server (finally!)  
 </p>  
   
 <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:
