imported 993 bookmarks into del.icio.us

So how do I make them all public now? Should I?

I had been wanting to use my delicious for a while. Last time I looked I could not find a way to import my Safari bookmarks.
But today as I was browsing around, I noticed that they had a nice easy to use service, so I imported all 993 of them, which took them well over 5 hours to digest. Presumably they need to check each link to see if it's alive, and connect it to the rest of their network.
Once in the only problem was none of the bookmarks were shared. The only way to share them, was to click each link individaully. I tried and managed to share 100 of them, one by one, but I can report right now that this is very tedious. There does not seem to be a way to share them all in one go. Perhaps I am not meant to?

Well it looks like it should be possible to do this quite easily using the del.icio.us java api. Perhaps I'll use that.

Any good tips on del.icio.us usage?

See http://www.hybernaut.com/bdv/delicious-import.html It's a perl script that can import your html netscape/mozilla bookmark file.

That's no longer needed. They have a nicely laid out service to do that now: you just upload a file and they take care of the rest. It just takes time...
