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

! 12: The server is written in Java, and uses XML-RPC to communicate to clients.
! 13: There's also a client written in Swing, which is pretty functional. The current
! 14: goal is to get the Mozilla client back into shape given the existence of
! 15: a working server.
! 16: </p>
! 18: <p>
! 19: To get the server running on your machine, download the server.zip file
! 20: <a href="http://tersesystems.com/bookie/server.zip">here</a>. You should
! 21: start the server with
! 23: <code>java -Dlog4j.configuration=info.xml -jar server.jar</code>
! 25: in a directory for Bookie usage. No database is required, as Bookie will
! 26: create its own database if it doesn't find one. It will start on port 9000
! 27: by default, but you can specify the port on the command line.
! 28: <a href="http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4/download.html">JDK 1.4</a> with the
! 29: <code>-server</code> option is recommended, as the I/O performance is MUCH
! 30: faster than 1.3.1.

! 34: To get the java client running, download the client.zip file <a
! 35: href="http://tersesystems.com/bookie/client.zip">here</a>.
! 36: Unzip the client in a new directory, and execute it with one of the
! 37: scripts or <code>java -jar client.jar</code>.

1.36 ! will 46: <li>Create a new connection to http://localhost:9000.</li>
! 47: <li>Double click on the connection to connect to the server.</li>
1.34 will 48: <li>When the server asks you if you would like to be registered for the
1.36 ! will 49: server, say yes.</li>
1.34 will 50: <li>Click on the root folder, then click on the File menu and select the
1.36 ! will 51: import menu item. </li>
1.34 will 52: <li>Import your bookmarks by going to your netscape bookmarks.html file
1.36 ! will 53: and clicking on that. As an example, my Mozilla file is under "C:\Documents
! 54: and Settings\Will Sargent\Application Data\Mozilla\Profiles\default\mq632ho0.slt"
! 55: </li>
1.35 will 56: <li>Or, if you are using Internet Explorer, you can import your bookmarks by going
57: to "C:\Documents and Settings\Will Sargent\Favorites" and importing the favorites from there.</li>
58: <li>You can also export to Netscape if you want to get bookmarks out of the server.</li>
59: <li>That's it!</li>

! 64: There is an example bookmark server at
! 65: <a href="http://tersesystems.com">http://tersesystems.com</a>. To connect
! 66: to the test server, please enter
! 67: <code>http://tersesystems.com:9000/</code>
! 68: as your URL. <strong>Please do not use a normal password</strong>:
! 69: most of Bookie's traffic is not encrypted, and you may be vulnerable to
! 70: packet sniffing. Also note that there is no expectation of privacy on this
! 71: server. Although I intend to keep all bookmark information private, I reserve
! 72: the right to look at any and all data on the server for debugging purposes.
