I couldn't stand moving from computer to computer and having to look up<p>
different bookmarks.  I wanted to be able to search my bookmarks and haveYou can read what Bookie is <a href="purpose.html">here</a>, but here's the
bookmarks I never used moved out of my way.  I wanted to share my bookmarkslong and short of it: 
with someone.  And I wanted total integration with the browser, so I didn't</p>
have to go through a web interface or a specific bookmarking program. 
 
<p> Bookie is a project born of an itch to make collaborative bookmarking a 
reality.  It was partly conceived out of <a 
href="http://www.mozilla.org/blue-sky/ui/199805/bookmarks.html">good 
bookmarking</a> and <a 
href="http://www.mozilla.org/blue-sky/misc/199805/collaborative-bookmark-index.html">collaborative 
bookmark indexing</a>. 
 
<p>The server is written in Java which sends bookmark information over a 
protocol to the client.  The server is written and can get bookmarks and 
folders to the client in RDF format. 
   
<p> An integration to Mozilla is halfway done.  There is also a debugging<blockquote>
client written in Swing.  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.
 </p>
 
 <p>
  To get the server running on your machine, download the server.zip file
  <a href="http://tersesystems.com/bookie/server.zip">here</a>.  You should
  start the server with 
 
   <code>java -Dlog4j.configuration=info.xml -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.  You need Java 1.4 
  to run the server and client.
 </p>
 
 <p>
  To get the java client running, download the client.jar file <a
  href="http://tersesystems.com/bookie/client.jar">here</a> or or as a <a href="http://tersesystems.com/bookie/jnlp/bookie.jnlp">Webstart Application</a>.
  If you are using the client.jar file, execute it with <code>java -jar client.jar</code>.  
 </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://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>
 </p>    
 
 <p>
  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.
