Silly Book: Dick Tricks

Just for fun I am reviewing a book (and website) called:

(Obviously a book for fun loving adults only) [P.S. A lot of chicks don't get this cool book. I wonder why ;) ]

Title: Dick Tricks
ISBN: 978-91-85449-27-9
Website: http://www.dick-tricks.com
Authors: David Grehn & Rolf Carlbom

The book has lots of fun ways to liven up any occasion by using, yes you guessed it guys, your dick!

Face it girls, men are fascinated by our own dicks! No surprises there! And guys this book is all about more things to do with your dick. So brace yourselves everybody!

The website is funny and informative! But the thing I like most is nearly all of the images in the book are available on the website!

The black and white drawings are not graphic, which is great. (Aka full colour photos would have sucked , big time!)

The authors proclaim that "This book addresses why our best friend is associated with shame, negativity and taboos and how to break out of that mold."

At least thats what you as the reader are told. I think that statement is absolute rubbish. I think the authors want to spread their chaos far and wide. This book will certainly make wives and girlfriends, the world over, quiver in fear! ( evil laugh )

There are tons of ways to get good laughs here! However *disclaimer* I am sure some of these moves (if fully carried out) may get you badly hurt. If not by the moves themselves, then by the intended audience!

There is a particularly cool move called the "ice breaker". You stand and simply drop your pants in the middle of a quiet and reserved dinner party! That should certainly liven things up and get the conversations started!

It is dick game chaos!

There are seriously bad dick imitations of the real everyday objects.

Every wanted to play a dick drum using your scrote and a glass (I didn't and still don't but i laughed stupid!) or fly a mosquito around the room? Every wondered what a shark looks like or how to make your thumb look super swollen?? Cannons, Nuke explosions, hotdogs, its all there!

What if your dick was the Olympic torch lighting the hopes of millions? Well here is your chance to find out! Because I am scared, a couple of the ones I would definitely not be trying out!

Oh yes and your girl will never ask for the time, from your magical "Wristwatch", in quite the same way. Especially when you are naked! Laugh

Go to their web site for free dick-tricks and details about the book!

The book is available in South Africa via Zytek Publishing Pty Ltd otherwise through Amazon.com

Regular Expression Tools Reviews

As an avid user of regular expressions, I find any RegEx tool very very handy.

Here are some that I have used and like and a short review of each. I rate Expresso as the best tool I have used!

Expresso ( http://www.ultrapico.com/Expresso.htm )
A powerful tool for both beginners and advanced RegEx programmers alike!

  • Very powerful visual expression builder including hex expressions (for those people like myself who always seem to get the syntax wrong!)
  • RegEx Analyser to show you visually what your expression means
  • RegEx Validator to show your expression parsing visually
  • Timing tests to help you optimize very complex expressions
  • Export results to XML, CSV, TAB delimited and plain text
  • Expression Library for common expressions
  • Recently used expression list
  • Code generator(C#, c++ and VB.net)
  • Compile to Assembly DLL
  • Load test data from file or load expression from file
  • Hints at startup
  • Lots of built in help and RegEx guide
  • Freeware registration
  • None so far

The Regulator ( http://tools.osherove.com/CoolTools/TheRegulator/tabid/185/Default.aspx )
Not a bad tool with a few unique features.

  • Plugin Support
  • Built in support for http://regexlib.com/ online RegEx repository
  • Generate Code (C# and VB.NET)
  • Compile to Assembly DLL
  • Javascript or JScript support
  • Online search of repository did not work for me
  • None of the advance analysis and testing features of Expresso
  • No clear visual feedback of expression results
  • Not as polished as Expresso
RegExDesigner.NET ( http://www.sellsbrothers.com/tools/#regexd )
A lightweight tool to perform basic regular expression operations.
  • .NET (C# and vb.net) Code Generator and Compile to Assembly DLL
  • Really small download (260Kb)
  • Nice and small and quick to use
  • Freeware
  • Not very feature rich
  • No advanced features
  • No "debugging" of RegEx

TortoiseSVN has released another very useful tool to manage your SVN (Subversion) repository.

CommitMonitor: It sits in the task tray and allows you to poll your SVN repository every few minutes and shows you the new commits!

Tool's homepage is here!
