                     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

                     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

                     24: MUCH faster than 1.3.1.
