PowerCommands for Visual Studio 2010

PowerCommands adds new items to the context menu when you are in the solution explorer like opening a command prompt for the directory of the file or folder you are in.  You also get the "Transform Templates" context menu for folders with .tt file in them

Add it by going to Tools\Extension Manger and search for PowerCommands

Enable AHCI Hard Drive

On my machine I have enabled AHCI drives

I changed a registry setting to 0

In the bios I had to enable SATA AHCI as well as SATA AHCI Legacy

Now it seems to have increased HD speed 50%.

The Great Robot Race

Twenty-three bizarre looking vehicles line up at the gate of the DARPA Grand Challenge with one thing in common: there's nobody behind the wheel. With names like Terramax, Ghostrider, and Stanley, these vehicles are armed with cutting-edge technology.
