Create hotspot on your windows machine

Being a developer, you might want to test your localy hosted websites with various mobile devices. The easiest way is to create a virtual hotspot and have the devices connected there. This can be easily done executing the first two commands of the following gist in an administration command prompt (run as admin):
Once connected, your devices will get an ip in the range of 192.168.x.y (mine was 192.168.173.something) and the pc will be available on the 192.168.x.1 ip.
In order to disable the hotspot, just run the last command on the gist.
