 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>.  Unjar it with    
 <code>jar xvf client.jar</code> and it will create a bookie-client directory  
 with all the source and javadoc.  Go to the bin directory, make sure you have   
 the JAVA_HOME environment variable set, and start up client.bat.  JDK 1.3 will  
 work , although again 1.4 has been found bo be much faster.  
 </p>  
   
 <p>  
 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>That's it!  
   </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.    
 <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>

 <p>To get the server running on your machine, download the server.zip file

 <p>To get the java client running, download the client.zip file <a

   <li>You can also export to Netscape if you want to get bookmarks out of the server.</li>
   <li>That's it!</li>
