del.icio.us to Brain
Not made much of a change so it does nothing special with carriage returns and that sort of stuff (exercise for the reader) but notes added... maybe, not tested much.
del.icio.us to Brain
I used to use it as a place to store my bookmarks so that I could access them from anywhere. I now use chrome's synchronised bookmarks. Obviously the brain can be used for bookmarks but it's not my cup of tea as it requires a change of focus away from the browser.

The idea behind the application was so that I could move away from del.icio.us and over to the brain.

Harlan, this release seems to have fixed an issue I reported on Linux whereby moving files into the brain wasn't working, thanks.

Pasting web link to a though replaces thought text
If you create a thought, then paste a web link to the thought, it downloads the title of the page and replaces the thought name with the page title, losing my thought name.

I can add an attachment to a thought, but if I then try to move the attached file into the brain, the existing attachment is lost and the file stays where it is.
del.icio.us to Brain
You're not being stupid, I've just been presumptuous.

The script's written in Python so you'll need that installed for it to work. I'm not a windows user but I might be able to make it a windows executable. To use it, you need to export your bookmarks to a file, it's in the settings section of delicious. Then run:

python delicious2brain.py file:///bookmarks.htm > brain.xml

You can then import the XML file into a Brain. This is what I'd do on a unix machine, I'll see about making an exe for windows, sorry.
Cannot import PB XML with tags in

My isType is 0. It's not XML that I've created, it's XML that's been exported from PB. Here's the log:

extension 0 = xml

Cannot import PB XML with tags in

Hello. If I export a Brain that has tags in it to PersonalBrain XML and then try to import it I get an error. If I do the same with a brain with no tags in it then it works fine. The export and import are both done within 5.5 Beta,


del.icio.us to Brain

Hello there, not sure whether this will be of interest to anyone but I knocked this together to get my del.icio.us bookmarks into the Brain. I've only tested it with version 5. It'll create output in Brain XML format which you can then import into PB.

Edit: I should say that it groups your bookmarks under parent tag nodes, it doesn't just import them all under one node. It also creates the tags.
