Fixing large file truncation in lophttpd

I dont want this to become a webserver blog, but I just fixed
a bug which lead to truncation of  large files (e.g. >1Gig)
while downloading. Stupid bug by using %d rather than %zu.
Its available at the usual location (version 0.85). 

Thanks to the one and only Nico for reporting. Your mad
scientists can now continue to download the star collision avi's.

Looking for lophttpd testbeds

I am looking for heavy loaded sites which serve static
content (e.g. banners, pictures,  iso's etc.) to test
my http server software and to help it to improve.
I added  some experimental features recently
which will be released soon and mainly consit of
various log providers to overcome possible bottlenecks
during logging.
If you have  thousands requests/sec, writing out logs 
can become an issue and I added support for AIO and
mmaped-backed buffers.

If you are interested, drop me an email or a comment.I am
BTW also looking for donations of mobile devices
to continue my Android and WebOS research. :)
