I use onlinebookmarkmanager.com and am pretty happy with it.

Ah, yes. I should have mentioned one of my requirements: I need to have control over the server. So I need server *software* to run on my own machine...

A do it yourself could be made. It would only require a DB and a simple PHP script. It would requires a development of about 30 hours from a small evaluation on my side and you will be able to put the features you want and the search engine you need. Also you could export it easily to different format that would allow you to import it in Firefox or Epiphany or whatever you use. There is so much of possibilities from a development side.

You can start with the already done development of BookMark4u.

Yes, this may be the best solution. I'm not dissatisfied with Bookmark4u. So I don't need to reimplement it; I don't need (at this point) new features. So it seems (in the absence of the existence of an actively maintained bookmarker server) the best solution will be to port it to PHP5. I can do that. I was just hoping I didn't have to spend the time learning PHP, and more, the differences between 4 & 5. I'm an academic programmer (meaning I learn what I need to accomplish my tasks) and am more comfortable with python, ruby and the like and don't normally use PHP. Oh, well. Another item for my CV... ;-)

Thanks for the suggestion.


Why don't you use ruby on rails?


If I was going to reimplement a bookmark manager, Ruby on Rails would definitely the way to go. But I'm hoping to find a shorter path to the goal than a complete rewrite...
