                      5: Bookie is an application which keeps all your bookmarks on a
                      6: central server so that you can access bookmarks from anywhere on the web.

                     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
1.30      will       22: on the command line.  <a href="http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4/download.html">JDK 1.4</a> 
                     23: with the <code>-server</code> option is recommended, as the I/O performance is
                     24: MUCH faster than 1.3.1.

                     28: To start the client, download the client file 
                     29: <a href="http://tersesystems.com/bookie/client.jar">here</a>.  You do not need
                     30: anything besides the <code>-jar</code> option, although again 1.4 has been found
                     31: to be much faster.  When the client starts up, it will present you with a 
                     32: connections box:

                     38:     <li>Double click on the connection to connect to the server.
                     39:     <li>When the server asks you if you would like to be registered for the server, say yes.
                     40:     <li>Click on the root folder, then click on the File menu and select the import menu item.  
                     41:     <li>Import your bookmarks by going to your netscape bookmarks.html file and clicking on that.
                     42:         As an example, my Mozilla file is under "C:\Documents and Settings\Will Sargent\Application Data\Mozilla\Profiles\default\mq632ho0.slt"
                     43:     <li>Close down and restart the client (there is a bug that stops import from updating).
