Save £10 on Shadow.tech Virtual Gaming PC

So you may have seen the Shadow Virtual Gaming PC on Channel5's The Gadget Show, this where i found about it.

Subsequently i opened an account and so far pretty impressed, it streams fairly smooth and once all setup i was playing within 10 - 15 mins.

The network speed on the VM is stupidly fast, my first game which was 55GB downloaded at roughly 50mb/s (roughly 500mbps), that is pretty fast!

The game ran smoothly on full settings, however as the game i was playing is a bit different than the usual (City Skylines) the graphics card isn't as important, all the work is done by the CPU.

The only thing i would say is that 12GB of RAM isn't much, and soon filled once some mods are added to the game.

If you want to give it a try then use my code below and save £10 off your first month.

How to increase the Umbraco Media upload limit

If you need to increase the upload limit with Umbraco, this can easily be done if you have root access to your server.

You may have to contact your hosting provider if this is not the case.

First off, you need to update your Web.Config allow the file size you need...

Carry out a search for:

maxRequestLength

Then change the value to the file size you require in kb, for example 100MB in kb is 100000

Once you have made this change you need to update IIS to also increase the limit, there are 2 ways to do this...

First Way:

Navigate to:

cd %winsrv%\system32\inetsrv

and run this code:

appcmd.exe set config "sitename" -section:requestFiltering -requestLimits.maxAllowedContentLength:size in bytes -commitpath:apphost

Second Way:

Open Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager find your website under Sites and click on its name.

Then under IIS click on Request Filtering in this section on the right click on Edit Feature Settings

Then change the Maximum allowed content length (Bytes) in my case again 100MB is 104857600Bytes.

Click Ok and then restart your sites Application Pool
