+npm uses two configuration files, one for per-user configs, and another
+for global (every-user) configs. You can view them by doing:
+
+```bash
+npm config get userconfig # defaults to ~/.npmrc
+npm config get globalconfig # defaults to /usr/local/etc/npmrc
+```

+this means that future npm installs will not remember the settings that
+you have chosen.
