lighttpd won’t start and doesn’t output or log any error message

I was working on a server and for some reason lighttpd wouldn’t start for some odd reason. Running it via Debian/Ubuntu “invoke-rc.d lighttpd start” or “/etc/init.d/lighttpd start” wouldn’t reveal an error message or anything in the log. I hop’d on irc.freenode.net and put some information about my problem in the channel #lighttpd channel.

11:15 < comm> Hi, lighttpd recently won’t start up and doesn’t give any error output in the logs or stdout, I have an strace log.
11:17 < comm> The following is the strace output http://pastebin.com/m74389d99
11:35 < hoffie> comm: you are probably running in the bug that there are some error messages in a bad stage (right after forking, but
before having the errorlog available), so you cannot see the message…
11:35 < hoffie> this is being worked on
11:36 < hoffie> strace -ff -ewrite lighttpd … should reveal it
11:48 < comm> hoffie: danke!
11:49 < comm> hoffie: and it did find my error, thank you!

Now I can go about fixing this blunder!

Mobile Chat When Will it Work?

If you've had an iPhone since the launch of Apples Application Store, then you most likely have bought the app Mobile Chat. I mean who wouldn't, just looking at their features http://mobilech.at/features you'd be silly not to pick the only instant messenger on the iPhone. Granted there are Web App versions, but nothing application wise. Here are some of the features.
MobileChat supports the following protocols: * AIM/ICQ/.Mac/MobileME * Windows Live/MSN * Yahoo Messenger * GTalk * Jabber/XMPP Multiple Accounts

Apples iPhone Firmware 2.0.2 Causes More Issues Than It Fixes

I just saw this article on Slashdot... Slashdot | Apple's IPhone 3G Firmware Update Bombs Yahoo posted the news article... Apple's iPhone 3G Firmware Update Bombs (NewsFactor) by NewsFactor: Yahoo! Tech Both articles comment on the 2.0.1 firmware. However if you read the original article, it speaks about the new firmware which is 2.0.2 and was released on the 18th.
