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