I like guns…

I am very pro-gun.  The 2nd amendment says it all.  Every honest, law-abiding, and freedom loving American citizen, should be allowed to own a firearm.  The police are under no obligation to protect you.  I love my girlfriend, and my family.  I will never rely upon anyone other than myself to protect the ones I love.  Free people own weapons, only slaves are disarmed!


So I made it out to Vegas again…

The birthday girl and I headed to Las Vegas for the week of Halloween 2013.  We had a good time and I saw a lot of Vegas strip.  We also spent the day out at the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area.  For Halloween, we cruised up to Fremont St. and had a lot of fun, dancing in the streets.

North Rim of the Grand Canyon…

I took my lovely GF up to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon.  It was awesome, even though it rained a bit.  We cut through Schnebly Hill after passing through Sedona.  The views were amazing, but damn that is a bumpy 4×4 trail.  We then headed up to Schultz Pass, but about halfway through, the gates were closed/locked.  We stopped at Navajo Bridge and then hit up Jacob’s Inn before heading down AZ-67 towards our eventual camping grounds.  Everything is so beautiful around the Grand Canyon!


Apache Trail to Globe, AZ. and back…

In August of 2013, my awesome girlfriend & I, along with my friends Scott & Mandi, headed out to Globe, Arizona via Tortilla Flats, Canyon Lake, the Roosevelt Dam.  On the return loop, we parted ways with Scott & Mandi and then hit up the Boyce Thompson Arboretum.


Took the Taco to Sheep Bridge…

My brother and I took a 100+ mile dirt trek out to Sheep Bridge and back. We took Cave Creek Road up to Bloody Basin Road, then East to Sheep Bridge. After lunch, we back tracked to the Cave Creek & Blood Basin intersection and headed West towards the Agua Fria National Monument and on through to I-17. Then we headed 60 miles down I-17 back to Phoenix.

Recent rain had little yellow flowers everywhere!

Took an easy run up GWT today…

Today was a wonderful day to head out to the Great Western Trail.  We cruised up Pima road to Cave Creek road and to Tonto Hills.  There we posed for some pictures with the “World’s Tallest Kachina Statue”.  From there we headed up to the old washed out 7 Springs Campground.  Not a really long ride, but enough to get out and have some fun.

Las Vegas…

So last week, I had to be in Vegas for a the NAHB International Builders’ Show.  What better way to get there than ride?  I also wanted to take as many two lane highways as possible.  All in all, I covered 600+ miles there and back along some great Arizona and Nevada scenery, including Route 66!

Finally done…

So I finally finished college this past week. O M G, it feels so good to be done.  College grad @ age 36! Better late than never.


Using forfiles.exe to delete old files…

August 4, 2012 · Posted in Geekness · Comments Off 

So I setup a PC DVR unit to handle some security cameras for a client of mine.  As a result, the *.avi files would start to eat up a lot of space after a month or so of recording.  So I elected to use the forfiles.exe program to take care of the problem.  Note this is a windows platform and if you are using anything pre-W2k3 (like XP), you’ll need to download the program from MS (link is for x86!).

For simplicity, I just saved it in c:\windows.  Next you’ll need to figure out the proper syntax to use for your needs.  Mine was to delete any .AVI file that was older than 7 days, located in a particular pathway, such as c:\dvr-video.  Below is what I am using…

FORFILES -pc:\dvr-video-s -m*.avi -d-7 -c”CMD /c del /q @FILE”

I would suggest you test this prior to blasting away your files.  The line below will echo all the files that would normally be deleted if you ran the command above.

FORFILES -pc:\dvr-video -s -m*.avi -d-7 -c”CMD /c ECHO @FILE”

I would also suggest you take a look at the FORFILES syntax flags. Here is a link to the CMD syntax flags too, if you are new to the command.  Once you have it all worked out, save it in a notepad file with a .bat extension.  Location doesn’t matter, just somewhere you can find it for the next step.

The final step is to fire up your Task Scheduler and configure it to run this batch file however often you need it to run.  Since my batch file deletes files older than 7 days, I run it once a week on Saturday, at 4AM.

Overall, it is a pretty simple setup.

2 things to note…

1. If your files have spaces in them, this won’t work.  The only workaround I know offhand is to use underscore or hyphens in your files names.

2. If there are spaces in your pathway, you’ll need to put it in quotes, like FORFILES -p”c:\my pathway\has spaces\to my\files”
