Update the documentation a bit.

    1: <p>
    2: You can read what Bookie is <a href="purpose.html">here</a>, but here's the
    3: long and short of it: 
    4: </p>
    5: 
    6: <blockquote>
    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.
    9: </blockquote>
   10: 
   11: <p>
   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>
   17: 
   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 
   22: 
   23:   <code>java -Dlog4j.configuration=info.xml -jar server.jar</code>
   24: 
   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.
   31: </p>
   32: 
   33: <p>
   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>. 
   38: </p> 
   39: 
   40: <p>
   41:   When the client starts up, it will present you with a connections box:
   42: </p>
   43: 
   44: <p>
   45: <ul>
   46:     <li>Create a new connection to http://localhost:9000.</li>
   47:   <li>Double click on the connection to connect to the server.</li>
   48:   <li>When the server asks you if you would like to be registered for the
   49: 	  server, say yes.</li>
   50:   <li>Click on the root folder, then click on the File menu and select the
   51: 	  import menu item.       </li>
   52:   <li>Import your bookmarks by going to your netscape bookmarks.html file
   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>
   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>
   60: </ul>
   61: </p>    
   62: 
   63: <p>
   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.
   73: </p>
