  • Opa... Fiquei mais feliz ainda que você gostou da minha apresentação, depois de ver todas as suas apresentações.
    Acho que nenhum ser humano deveria ser obrigado a assistir a uma apresentação que não obedeçesse essas regras. Melhor mandar um world logo no email né.
    Muito bom.
    Abraços

  • Never use Clipart? That would be impossible for me. I think the ones I found on my MS programme look rather good on my slides.
