Windows 7: How To Delete Item Not Found Using CMD

By Brad YaleJan 22, 2015

Every operating system contains errors. One of the more common errors found within Windows OS's is the "item not found" or the "file not found" error. The error typically shows itself when a user tries to delete a file only to find it cannot be deleted when prompted with the following error message: "Could Not Find This Item: This Is No Longer Location in {insert_directory_here}. Verify the item's location and try again."

Well, for those of you who want to delete the file without verifying the item location, below is a quick video tutorial showing you how to delete the item in question.

Why Open Source Matters: Musings from All Things Open 2014

By Brad YaleOct 23, 2014

A few months back I wrote a post titled "Why Open Source Matters: Musings from OSCON 2014". The post covered five reasons why Open Source matters. Those reasons were/are:


  1. Code, Glitches and Open Source Security
  2. Open Source Software
  3. GitHub
  4. The Stringent Control of Proprietary Software
  5. The Endless Ability to Test, Play and Alter

While those reasons still ring true, I want to use this space to center in on another topic speaking to why Open Source and OSS matters more than ever: project management and time constraints.

The CAPTCHA: A History, A Problem, Possible Solutions

By Brad YaleSep 10, 2014

Everyone, every online user, at some point in time (most probably during a purchase) has outwardly professed "COME ON!" when trying and failing to enter a CAPTCHA. 

There is an old Ellen Degeneres joke which dryly states whoever is in charge of CD packaging must be sarcastically mean. Personally, this is how I feel about the inventor and users of the CAPTCHA.

Where did the CAPTCHA go wrong? How did it start with the best intentions of hackers and grow into a security solution almost guaranteed to cause cart abandonment? Why does the CAPTCHA make me/us so mad? Why hasn't something else come along to replace the CAPTCHA yet? 

In this post, we explore the history of the CAPTCHA, noted issues with the bot/spam tech and possible alternatives.
