Hi, Red Burke

The problem here is the directory path ~/project_folder/.git; after the git init command, .git folder was created in the current directory .

rm -r .git

Using the relative path here would be suffice. You were using the absolute path ~/project_folder/.git in your line of command, but the Code Challenge never indicates what the name of the current directory is, so ultimately your solution is incorrect.
