1.15      will        7: You can read what Bookie is <a href="purpose.html">here</a>, but here's the
1.34    ! will        8: long and short of it: 
        !             9: <blockquote>Bookie is an application which keeps all your bookmarks on a central
        !            10: server so that you can access bookmarks from anywhere on the web.</blockquote>
        !            11: <p>The server is written in Java, and uses XML-RPC to communicate to clients.
        !            12: There's also a client written in Swing, which is pretty functional.  The current
        !            13: goal is to get the Mozilla client back into shape given the existence  of
        !            14: a working server (finally!)</p>
        !            15: <p>To get the server running on your machine, download the server.jar file
        !            16: <a href="http://tersesystems.com/bookie/server.jar">here</a>.  You should
        !            17: start the server with &nbsp;<code>-Dlog4j.configuration=log4j.xml -jar server.jar</code>
        !            18: in a directory for Bookie usage.   No database is required, as Bookie will
        !            19: create its own database if it doesn't  find one.  It will start on port 9000
        !            20: by default, but you can specify the port on the command line.  <a
        !            21:  href="http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4/download.html">JDK 1.4</a>  with the
        !            22: <code>-server</code> option is recommended, as the I/O performance is MUCH
        !            23: faster than 1.3.1.</p>
        !            24: <p>To start the client, download the client file <a
        !            25:  href="http://tersesystems.com/bookie/client.jar">here</a>.  Unjar it with
        !            26:  <code>jar xvf client.jar</code> and it will create a bookie-client directory
        !            27: with all the source and javadoc.  Go to the bin directory, make sure you
        !            28: have  the JAVA_HOME environment variable set, and start up client.bat.  JDK
        !            29: 1.3 will work, although again 1.4 has been found to be much faster.</p>
        !            30: <p>When the client starts up, it will present you with a connections box:
        !            31: </p>
        !            32: <p>  </p>
        !            33: <ul>
        !            34:     <li>Create a new connection to http://localhost:9000.     </li>
        !            35:   <li>Double click on the connection to connect to the server.     </li>
        !            36:   <li>When the server asks you if you would like to be registered for the
        !            37: server, say yes.     </li>
        !            38:   <li>Click on the root folder, then click on the File menu and select the
        !            39: import menu item.       </li>
        !            40:   <li>Import your bookmarks by going to your netscape bookmarks.html file
        !            41: and clicking on that.         As an example, my Mozilla file is under "C:\Documents
        !            42: and Settings\Will Sargent\Application Data\Mozilla\Profiles\default\mq632ho0.slt"
        !            43:         </li>
        !            44:   <li>That's it!   </li>
        !            45: </ul>
        !            46:     
        !            47: <p></p>
        !            48: <p>There is be a permanent bookmark server at <a
        !            49:  href="http://tersesystems.com">http://tersesystems.com</a>.  To connect
        !            50: to the server at tersesystems, please enter <code>http://tersesystems.com:9000/</code>
        !            51: as your URL.  <strong .="">Please do not use a normal password</strong>:
        !            52: most of Bookie's traffic is not  encrypted, and you may be vulnerable to
        !            53: packet sniffing.  Also note that there is no  expectation of privacy on this
        !            54: server.  Although I intend to keep all bookmark information private,  I reserve
        !            55: the right to look at any and all data on the server for debugging purposes.
        !            56: </p>
        !            57: <p>Suggestions and comments are welcome.  If you have any problems with the
        !            58: above instructions, please e-mail me at the address below.</p>
