npm errors with infinite loop

Occasionally I’ll be working with a nodejs project and when I attempt to run $ npm install I’ll see what appears to be an infinite loop with the same package partially installing and then failing over and over.

I found a fix on the npm github issue tracker and I’ve added it here for posterity

rm -rf ~/.npm
