Too Many Webparts!!!

The page '/_catalogs/masterpage/somepage.aspx' allows a limit of 11 direct dependencies, and that limit has been exceeded.

 This Error is the result of having too many Web Parts on one page, luckily it's an easy fix.

navigate to C:\inetpub\wwwroot\wss\VirtualDirectories
here pick the port to your site, 80 is the default.
Navigate to the port number and then open the web.config, it's an xml. I suggest using Notepad++.
Once you have your web-config file open do a find on the term DirectFileDependencies
then simply change the number of the property DirectFileDependencies to something higher.

Just Save, reload your page  and presto everything is alright again.
