A different approach for bookmarks.by atlantageek (Monk)

Most programmers use multiple computers (at home and work) and it is often difficult to share bookmarks. You can email links to the home and office, you can use a bookmark sharing website (often requiring you to either go to the site and add the bookmark or downloading a windows only program).
I like my solution better. If you have your own cgi running website you can set up an email account that you can send your links too. Then write a perl script similar to the one below that can be run by a cronjob to rip links out of the email and save them to a flat file or database for the your website to display. The advantage in this approach is that just about all browsers have a email link option that is convient and easy to use. Here is a simple perl script that writes the links too a file.
Other possible features that could be added:
