In this article I take a look at the relative performance differences between the Nvidia 670 FTW, 780 SuperClock and the 780 ti as it pertains to Flight Simulator X (FSX).  I'll also include some non-fsx benchmarks for comparing how these three cards stack up.  This project began as an attempt to get a boost in performance in FSX from my original card which was the 670.  In the end I settled on the 780ti.

SpaceX just took another leap forward, or should we say hop with its Grasshopper test flight.  It hit 2440 feet (744 meters) above the McGregor, Texas facility.  They filmed using a hexacopter equipped with an HD camera.  This achievement occurred on October 7th 2013.  This is a rocket capable of launching and landing vertically, as seen in this video.  The goal of this program is to create a reusable first stage rocket engine for the Falcon 9.  Typically the first stage falls back to the earth and crashes in the ocean.  The goal is to have that first stage return to earth controlled and save money for future flights.

In this article I'll outline the steps I had to take to get Team Foundation Server 2010 server (TFS) upgraded to TFS 2012.  This is just one particular example of the various upgrade paths that might exist, but should give everyone a good rundown on how the process typically works.  I won't cover every possible upgrade scenario in this example, but I will briefly list some of them before digging in deeper.

Windows Blue (Windows 8.1) which is coming later in the year, most likely in the fall, may have the option to boot directly to the desktop.  This would make power users who prefer getting straight to the desktop experience happy and not require third party workarounds, though we had previously outlined some easy ways to boot directly to the desktop for the current iteration of Windows 8.
