Feature Request: Search for Speaker, Talk, or Event by ID

I always include the full URL to my talk on a slide in my deck so that people can provide me feedback but what I *want* to tell them is "just remember two things: SpeakerRate.com and the talk ID 1234" (for simplicity's sake vs. them having to recall the full /t/id syntax.

Unfortunately, there is NO WAY to search for a talk on the site if all you have written down from my slide is the talk ID. "Seach" doesn't also search the ID of the talks (or speakers, or events).

It would really be helpful to attendees to find my talks easily later to provide ratings/feedback if the SEARCH functionality also searched the talk/speaker/event ID in addition to titles and summaries. Failing that a completely separate "quick-search-for-talk", "quick-search-for-speaker", and/or "quick-search-for-event" kind of control on the homepage (and elsewhere) would also work if you don't want to expand the existing SEARCH capabilities to include searching-by-id.

Basically, if one knows the ID of something they want to find, there isn't presently any way for them to come to the site and USE that knowledge to find what they are looking for -- instead, they have to somehow puzzle-out the "magical, special URL structure" that would enable them to navigate directly to the resource to which they are trying to get.

Otherwise -- nice site and I'm enjoying using it!
