        !            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.

        !            20:  <a href="http://tersesystems.com/bookie/server.zip">here</a>.  You should

        !            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.

        !            29:  <code>-server</code> option is recommended, as the I/O performance is MUCH
