                Extensions.dll supports all versions of .NET from 3.5 through 5.0
                Highlights are methods such as:
                Use .Save() and .Load() for easy state saving of any object in C#.
                Use .Retry() to easily handle 429 throttling errors in web calls.
                Use System.Timer class to quickly add stopwatch timing functionality.
                Use .IsPrime() to determine if a number is a prime number.
                Use .GetNthPrime() and .GetNthPrimeAsync to get the Nth prime number capable of calculating 10,000,000 primes/minute on an Intel Core i7-6700K CPU @ 4.00 GHz using 7 threads on 8 logical cores.
                Use .ReplaceTokens() to replace multiple strings in string dictionary style.
                Use .IsStrong() to validate strong passwords.
                Use .ToTimeZone() to quickly convert any given time to any given time zone.
                Use .Elevate() to restart current process in admin mode if it doesn't have admin rights.
                Use System.Timer to quickly and easily time anything.
                Use .CompoundInterest() to calculate any given interest over any given perior at any given interval.
                and many, many more.

     aliquam arcu rhoncus erat consectetur, quis rutrum augue tincidunt.
     Suspendisse elit ipsum, lobortis lobortis tellus eu, vulputate
     fringilla lorem. Cras molestie nibh sed turpis dapibus sollicitudin
     ut a nulla. Suspendisse blandit suscipit egestas. Nunc et ante mattis
     nulla vehicula rhoncus. Vivamus commodo nunc id ultricies accumsan.

     It ignores duplicate '*' in the mask.  '*' is matched against
     0 or more characters.  Duplicate '?' is treated as requiring
     the number of characters.  '?' is matched against 1 or more
     characters.
     For example:
     "abcdefgh".Match("***a?c*")
     will return True while
     "abcdefgh".Match("***ac*")

     Checks if a System.Net.WebException contains a "Retry-After" header.
     If it does, it sleeps the thread for that period (+ 60 seconds)
     before reattempting to HTTP call that caused the exception in the
     first place.  If no "Retry-After" header exist, the exception is
     simply rethrown.
     For example:
     System.Net.HttpWebRequest request ...
     Try
     {
     request.GetResponse();
     }
     Catch (System.Net.WebException ex)
     {
     ex.Retry(request);

     "...---...[Undefined:[@]]"

     ToQueryString()
     Convert given Dictionary[string, string]
     into a querystring.

     Dictionary[string, string] dic1 = new Dictionary[string, string]();
     dic1.Add("Parm1", "Val1");
     dic1.Add("Parm2", "Val2");
     dic1.Add("Parm3", "Val3");
     Console.WriteLine(dic1.ToQueryString());

     Console.WriteLine(dbl.ToKB(Constants.NumberType.TB));
     Console.WriteLine(dbl.ToKB(Constants.NumberType.GB));
     Console.WriteLine(dbl.ToKB(Constants.NumberType.ZB));
     will return
     1073741824
     1048576
     1.15292150460685E+18

     ToTimeZone()
     Convert given DateTime between different time zones with ease.
     For example:
     System.DateTime now = System.DateTime.UtcNow;
     now.ToTimeZone(
     Constants.TimeZone.UTC,
     Constants.TimeZone.EasternStandardTime));
     will return the current UTC time as Eastern time.

     TrimLength()
     Returns part of the given System.Text.StringBuilder object
     tuncated to the requested length minus the length of the
     suffix.
     If the string is null or empty, it returns said value.
     If the string is shorter than the requested length, it returns
     the whole string.
     For example:
     "The Extensions.cs NuGet package rocks!".TrimLength(20)
     will return "The Extensions.cs..." while
     "The Extensions.cs NuGet package rocks!".TrimLength(20, "")
     will return "The Extensions.cs Nu" and
     "The Extensions.cs NuGet package rocks!".TrimLength(20, ">>")
     will return "The Extensions.cs >>"

     ValidateNoNulls()
     Makes quick work of null validating all parameters you pass to it.
     This method takes a variable number of parameters and validates that
     all parameters are not null.  If a parameter is found to be null, a
     ArgumentNullException is thrown.
     For example:
     void MyMethod(string str, double dbl, MyClass cls)
     {
     Universal.ValidateNoNulls(str, dbl, cls);
     ...Your code here...
     }
     You do not have to pass all parameters, but can instead do this:
     void MyMethod(string str, double dbl, MyClass cls)
     {
     Universal.ValidateNoNulls(str, cls);
     ...Your code here...
     }
     where we chose NOT to validate the double dbl in this case.

     Words()
     This method returns the number of words used in the given string
     object.
     For example:
     "This is my test".Words()
     will return 4 whereas
     "ThisIsMyTest".Words()
     will return 1.
