Google and Morse Code

I've just visited Google.com and got the following page:



Ah... It has been a while since I used Morse code.
Now, let's give it a try. I put [--. --- --- --. .-.. .] in the search field of Google. The result is ...

Your search - --. --- --- --. .-.. . - did not match any documents.


How come there's no match? Google should provide the search result in Morse code. Ha ha ha. Any takers out there?

Wowed by slideshare

I was going to create a presentation that I have to do in two days. I've got some ideas but they are still 10% of what I needed. I need inspiration. So, I went to slideshare.net. Boy, ... it was a "bad" decision, I guess.

I ended up browsing lots of slides. Just because they are awesome. How could they create great presentations? They are very good in design. Me? I have no idea what "design" is. I need a more formal foundation in this.

Is there a book, web, tutorial, or something that I can use to study good designs?
Please ...

As for my presentation, it has to wait for one more day. Hey, I said I have two days. :)

Vote for who?

Tomorrow is election day. We - Indonesians - will vote for the political party (ies) that will rule Indonesia. Great. But the sad part is that I don't know what or who to vote. Suggestion anybody?

Perhaps it doesn't matter anyway?
