Access NTFS (Windows) Disk from OSX using MacFuse

I know, its nothing new, however not many people know about it. Personally I don’t have that many NTFS external drives, mostly because I knew it would cause issues with Mac and Linux/Unix. So instead I use to format most of my external drives as Fat32. However I would have to make  a couple of partitions manually because Windows 2000/XP actually limited you from creating partitions large than 32/64GB. You can get the specifics because this covers more than this article at WikiPedia:

Don’t worry about Fat32, partition your drives as NTFS and make them as large as you want. You can now using them on Mac OSX using MacFuse and NTFS-3g from Tuxera.

Macfuse –  http://code.google.com/p/macfuse/
NTFS-3G from Tuxera – http://macntfs-3g.blogspot.com/

Install both and enjoy!

Bug Clean up for QuickPwn

Not too long after releasing and updated PwnageTool and Quickpwn, the iphone-dev.org team has released an update to QuickPwn.
We’ve had some issues with iPod touch devices and the latest version of PwnageTool for the Mac, in certain conditions incorrect permissions will be used and the keychain doesn’t save passwords. So hold on and wait for the next release, we’ll push out the updated version via Sparkle as soon as it is tested (it is being tested right now).

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.
