    1: You can read what Bookie is <a href="purpose.html">here</a>, but here's the
    2: long and short of it:

    4: <blockquote>
    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.

    9: <p>I have a server which is currently using a hacked up protocol based on
   10: FTP.  I have since learned why no-one uses a protocol from the 1970's if
   11: they can help it: the code is going to go away and be replaced with XML-RPC,
   12: which is both simpler and more intelligent.  Dunno anything about SOAP, but
   13: since it's not out of committee yet, I'm not going to worry about it.
   14: 
   15: <p>Mozilla client is still very rudimentary, but it does do XML-RPC queries.
   16: If you enjoy pain or would like to help, then you can pick up the code from

   18: Thanks to Aaron Andersen for the cool <a

   23: makefile.win"</code> should take care of the problem.

   30: href="http://www.junit.org/">Junit</a>.  At least.  I've been using JBuilder
   31: and haven't bothered to put together an <a
   32: href="http://jakarta.apache.org/ant/index.html">Ant</a> script.  If someone
   33: does, please mail it to me.
