Create a SAML keystore for SSO
# Create a password-protected keystore. Change the -keypass value to a password that meets your password policy. LastPass (or some other password generator) can come in handy here for creating a password.
keytool -genkeypair -alias my-service-provider -keypass password -keyalg RSA -keysize 2048 -keystore my-sso-keystore.jks
# Use openssl to get the identity provider's public key as a file named sso.crt.
openssl s_client -connect > sso.crt
# Open the sso.crt file in any editor and remove everything around the BEGIN and END lines. If required, concatenate with any intermediate certificates.
vi sso.crt
# When done editing, the file should look similar to this:

Created Jun 27, 2019
A prompt for the mongo shell that displays the user you're logged in as and the database you're pointed at.
View .mongrc.js
Set the mongo shell prompt to display [user name]@[database name]. If the user or database name cannot
be captured, then display "<none>" instead.
var prompt = function() {
var user = db.runCommand({connectionStatus : 1}).authInfo.authenticatedUsers[0].user || "<none>";
var dbLabel = db.getName() || "<none>";
return user + "@" + dbLabel + ">";
# From here:
# First, make sure you have everything locally:
$ git fetch --all --tags --prune
# Show the local branches a commit is on (the "b4f8b91" is the first 7 characters of the commit hash):
$ git branch --contains b4f8b91

A .NET equivalent of Java's "GetOrDefault()" method
View get-or-default.cs
/// <summary>
/// Get a value <code>V</code> for the specified key <code>K</code>. If there is no value for the specified
/// key, return a default value instead.
/// </summary>
/// <remarks>
/// This code emulates the Java <code>GetOrDefault()</code> method on a <code>Map</code>. It's also a convenient
/// way to "inline" the <code>Dictionary#TryParse</code> and have it return some value in the event the key we're
/// looking for doesn't exist.
/// </remarks>
/// <example>
You can’t perform that action at this time.
