IIS on Windows XP has a default concurrent connection limit of 10 for the root website. Any connections made after 10 connections are being used up are greeted with a HTTP 403.9 Access Forbidden: Too many users are connected error message.
The default connection limit can be changed to the absolute maximum of 40 concurrent connections using the IIS adsutil.vbs administration script:


First you need to set the default windows script host to be the console. Do this by running the following command:

cscript //h:cscript

Next run the adsutil.vbs script from the Inetpub\AdminScripts like so:

C:\Inetpub\AdminScripts\adsutil set w3svc/MaxConnections 40

Job done!

AeroSnap is a free small application that mimics the upcoming Windows 7 snap features.
Dragging a document to the left or right of the screen will resizes it to half screen width so you can easily and quickly have two vertically centred documents.
Check out the video below:



It is still only beta and you need .NET 2.0 installed.
