        !            10: The server is written in Java, and uses XML-RPC to communicate to clients.
        !            11: There's also a client written in Swing, which is pretty functional.  The
        !            12: current goal is to get the Mozilla client back into shape given the existence 
        !            13: of a working server (finally!)

        !            17: To get the server running on your machine, download the server.jar file 
        !            18: <a href="http://tersesystems.com/bookie/server.jar">here</a>.  You should start
        !            19: the server with <code>-jar server.jar</code> in a directory for Bookie usage.  
        !            20: No database is required, as Bookie will create its own database if it doesn't 
        !            21: find one.  It will start on port 9000 by default, but you can specify the port
        !            22: on the command line.  JDK 1.4 with the -server option is recommended, as the I/O
        !            23: performance is MUCH faster than 1.3.1.

        !            29: anything besides the <code>-jar</code> option, although again 1.4 has been found
        !            30: to be much faster.  When the client starts up, it will present you with a
